Hi. My name is***** and I am online and available to help you today. Thank you for your patience.Question and answer is just one of the services I offer. I can also provide you with premium services, such as live telephone or skype consultation, at a small additional cost. Let me know if you are interested.You should have rinsed your eye out for at least 15 minutes with clean, flowing water.If you had soft contacts in, take them out and throw them away. Hard contacts can be cleaned.You might have a corneal abrasion from the bleach. Use cold compresses and put a lubricating ointment such as lacrilube or refresh PM in your eye.You should be better in 24 hours and suffer no long term problems.Does this make sense to you?It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me. Dr. Rick MD FACS
