Hello,

Thank you for the question. I am Dr.A.S.Desai, certified ophthalmologist and I look forward to answering this question.

The first thing to do is to rinse the eye with clean potable water for about 15 minutes continuously. This will ensure that the ear wax removal is out of the eye and also prevent the eye from getting irritated or inflamed . For the next 24 hours keep putting lubricating eye drops , 1 drop every 1-2 hours. The eye is likely to remain quiet after that.

However watch out for any redness/ irritation /watering the next day. If noted then do get your eye examined by an ophthalmologist for a closer look.

Hope this helps you to take the right decision. Take care.

Do remember to rate this response positively with 5 stars, if it was up to your expectation/satisfaction. A positive rating is the only way to credit the expert for the advice given and for the time spent. Please feel free to ask follow up questions if any.

Regards

Dr.A.S.Desai

Eye Doctor: Dr. A.S. Desai, Ophthalmologist replied 2 months ago

Don't worry, it was just an accidental mistake. The eye should be just fine provided you rinse the eye immediately as suggested earlier and then follow up with the lubricating eye drops.

I am sure your eye will be fine soon.

It might appear a bit red initially but should settle down over the next couple of hours or so.

You can get back to me anytime in case you feel that the symptoms are not better.

take care

They would do just the same even if you were to go to the ER now. Just rinse the eye until the irritant is out of the eye.

Just following up with you.

Did the eye wash help?
