It's chemical injuries of eye It's an occular emergency. So just wash with plenty of clear water or normal saline . Use ciplox eye drops hrly, Lubricatnt eye drops hrly. Reffered the patient to opthalmologist for evaluation of the damage of cornea and treatment. Never treat occular emergencies except the basic without supervision of ophthalmologist otherwise you are going to do more harm than help.

IT IS TRUE THAT VHEMCALS USED AS AN AGRICULTURE STUFF EXPOSE THEIR EYES SO ONE GETS CHEMICAL KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS SO WHILE SPRAYING THEY SHOULD USE PROTECTIVE GOGGLES EVEN IF THEY ARE EXPOSED IMMEDIATELY FLUSH THE EYES WITH WATER NEVER SELF MEDECATE TILL AN OPHTHALMOLOGIST IS CONSULTED NEVER USE TOPICAL STERIODS OF YOUR OWN OR FROM THE COUNTER

Agriculture pesticide spray spillage in eyes Check the label for directions on first aid for the product Hold the eye lid tightly and wash the conjunctival sac gently and quickly at least for 15 minutes let someone else contact poison control centre whole the patient is being treated. Do not use eye drops or chemical or drugs in wash water

Thank you doctor
