I splashed rubbing alcohol directly onto my eye.I rinsed it with water and sterile saline solution. It is hurting quite a bit. I'm having difficulty keeping my eye open. Should it be OK?

Hi there,

Keep on rinsing your eye with sterile saline and water till the pain goes down.

You can use Visin AC eye drops for soothing action.

If you are having trouble still in next few hours, better to go to the ER for a clinical evaluation.
