Do you use any eye drops?





Yesterday I accidentally got Dove with the micro beads soap in my eye while washing my face with a wash cloth. The burn really came from the inner corner of my eye. I tried to rinse my eye as much as I could for about 15 mins. My eye was still very red.

I put to eye drops in my eye to look presentable for work. It looked a little better. That night, I rinsed my eye again for 15 minutes and it was still red. This morning it’s still red and I don’t know what to do. There is no pain.

I do have a mild case of blepharitis and dry eyes. I’ve been using artificial tears and red eye drops thus far.

Please help me.

Thank you.


Thanks for your question



There is no need to rinse your eyes for more than once. Actually washing your eyes with water can cause irritation, drye eyes and redness.

Just keep using lubricant eye drops and if you your eye still red and you have foreign body sensation, you should visit your eye doctor. Microbeads are tiny plastics in soap and you might have some of them stuck in your eye.
