Chemical splash in the eye: First aid


If you are splashed in the face with a chemical, take these steps right away: -Wash your face with water -Scrub your eyes vigorously with a washcloth or sponge

  1. Flush your eye with water.Wash the leaves in lukewarm tap water for at least 20 minutes. Choose one of these methods: - Soak the leaves in a tub or sink full of lukewarm water for at least 20 minutes; - Rinse the leaves under running water for at least 20 minutes; - Gently scrub the leaves with a brush or a sponge.
    • Put some drops of water on your forehead or in the middle of your nose, hold your eyelids open, and let the water run over your eyes or onto your nose.
    • Open your eyes as wide as they will go and tilt your head to the side. Hold the lids of your affected eye open with one hand while using the other hand to gently run water over it. If you can get to a work site eye-rinse station, use it.
    • If you have an eye infection, young children may do best if they lie down in a bathtub or lean back over a sink. Pour a gentle stream of water onto the forehead over the infected eye or onto the bridge of the nose to flush both eyes.
  2. Wash your hands with soap and water.Soap and chemical residue should be washed off your hands before you continue.
  3. Remove contact lenses.If the leaves do not come out when the toilet is flushed, then they should be taken out.

Caution

  • Do not rub the eye - this could cause more damage.
  • Only use water or contact lens saline rinse in the eye. And do not use eyedrops unless an emergency personnel tells you to do so.

Seek emergency medical assistance

If you experience any of the following symptoms, go to an eye specialist (ophthalmologist) or call 911: seeing stars, blurred vision, redness or swelling in the eyes, severe headache. When you reach the emergency provider, be sure to bring along the container or name of the chemical that caused your symptoms. If you can, wear sunglasses to reduce your sensitivity to light.
