Hello there

how long has this been going on? is the eye red? was he working with any metal or brushings?

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
This has been since last night. No, he was not working with any metal or brushings. He was playing a video game. The eye is not red.
Expert:  Dr. Stevens replied 7 years ago.
I would suggest using some lubricants such as Refresh Optive every couple of hours and this should be better by tomorrow morning. He probably irritated it more rubbing and washing it. If he is not better, have him looked at, but using lubricants today is the way to go, Regards *****
