While working in garden, I got milk weed in my eye yesterday, is very paiful and cant see well vision is blury and burney.
I have washed out with eye solution but not much help.
what should I do?

You may have scratched the front surface of the eye (the cornea). Scratches or abrasion usually heal. If you scratched it with plant matter however, it puts you at increase risk for infection because of the dirtiness of the material.

For now, I would use artificial tears and lubricates for comfort. I recommend you see an eye specialist today if possible or a walkin clinic/urgent care, so they can make sure there is no infection and prescribe antibiotics to prevent infection.
