Have done this? You come out of the grocery store, get in your car, apply sanitizer to your hands, and then rub your eye? Not, again! Let the burning begin! What should you do?
First, stop rubbing your eye. Let your body do its job – blink to create tears. If your eye continues to burn, use water or saline solution to wash it out. Still burning? This may indicate an eye injury has occurred such as an open sore or corneal abrasion, even keratitis. This means you need to contact your eye doctor for an appointment right away.
Complications are uncommon, but if you stopped the burn, but now cannot see clearly contact your eye doctor for an appointment asap. We have urgent appointments available daily! Let us help you see a brighter future.
