Hello and thank you for your question. I’d be happy to assist you.

Well as you have bad eye pain and swelling so you should see a doctor at ER.

Usually initial treatment requires flushing with cool water,OTC Systane and Zaditor eye drops,Motrin,Zyrtec for symptomatic relief.

However your symptoms are severe and it can be chemical injury to your eye so I wouldn't recommend to wait and visit ER.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
It’s my pleasure to continue this conversation until you satisfy.
