Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe,possibly you have allergic reaction to chemicals and other components that make up the eyelashes extensions and adhesive products.

You should try some self care measures like

Clean eyes with cool water and apply cool compresses 2-3 times a day.

Then, instill one drop of preservative free tear drop (i.e. Refresh plus or Genteal drop) into the affected eyes every 1-2 hours for the rest of today (while awake).

In between the tear drops starting today, instill one drop of Zaditor eye drop (OTC) into the affected eye 4 times day.

Take OTC Motrin and Claritin.

If your symptoms'll not show any improvement in next few hours with such measures or you develop severe eye pain,redness then visit ER or see an ophthalmologist.
