Hi there,

You should washe your eyes well with clean water ( saline water better) well.

You can use OTC Visine AC eye drops twice daily to help with the soreness.

However there is risk of bacterial infection and corneal injury from the poking.

Hence, you should see your doctor also for a clinical evaluation by tomorrow if no improvement.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
