Have your rinsed his eyes...really flushed them ? If not...go do this and come back when you are done.

I already flushed his eyes really good...3 or 4 times as I had mentioned in my question to you... what now?
Expert:  Pat replied 9 years ago.
Tomorrow I would take him to the vet to have a stain done of his cornea.
This will tell if there are ulcerations in the eyes or not. Is he squinting? Painful?
Customer: replied 9 years ago.
no he is not squiting and does not seem in pain... is there anything else I can do for him besides washing his eyes out with water?
Expert:  Pat replied 9 years ago.
Saline would be better. Do you have any? There is really nothing else tonight? I am relieved that he is not squinting. You must of realized the problem and acted very fast!

He will be fine, however I would take him tomorrow to be absoutely sure!
