Customer Question

I mistakenly put ear drops (6.5% carbamide peroxide) in my eye (think it was my dry eye drops)...I have washed it with water with a little eye cup for 15 minutes. Any more to do?

I haven't had an answer in more than 40 minutes, and my eye is feeling better, so I will be going on and don't need an answer anymore.
