Tip # 8: What should be done in an eye emergency? / Chemicals in the Eye


Chemicals in the eye


Immediately flush the eye with water for at least 15 minutes. Place the eye under a faucet or shower, use a garden hose, or pour water into the eye from a clean container.


If you are wearing contact lenses, do not wait to remove the lenses. Begin flushing the eye immediately. This may wash the lens out of the eye.


Do not try to neutralize the chemical with other substances.


Do not bandage the eye.


Seek immediate medical attention after flushing.
