How's your eye right now?

Sorry for the delay. This was about my adult son. He rinsed it out for about 7 minutes. Says its fine now. Vision fine. Just slightly red.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Chip, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 8 months ago

No problem

Then he did the right thing

Sometimes there can be a corneal burn from that but if he doesn't have any pain now or blurry vision then he should be fine

Please let me know if you need any more information
