Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern. I advise you again wash your eyes in running water for around 15 to 20 minutes. Over-the-counter medication which can be used is 0.5 % Carboxymethylcellulose acetate (refresh tears eyedrops). I advise you to visit an ophthalmologist if you develop

1. Drop in vision.

2. Pain and watering.

3. Not responding or becoming worse.
