First Aid for Eye Injuries
Flush your eyes with cool, clean water for at least 15 minutes. Make sure you do this for the full 15 minutes, even if you are not experiencing any pain, in order to rinse away any residual chemicals left in the eyes that could cause further damage. After flushing your eyes, contact us for an emergency appointment or visit your nearest emergency room.
Do not attempt to remove the object or rub your eyes. Instead, rinse your eye with cool, clean water to help remove smaller objects or debris. After rinsing your eye, call us for an emergency appointment.
