Peroxide in my eye = OUCH!

Long story short, I am an idiot and basically got hydrogen peroxide in my eye this morning. My eye is *still* red and stinging. I have flushed it with water and saline solution. I have no clue what else to do... any ideas?? I am dying over here lol

flush again with water , then get the visine (for contacts) I know you may not have contacts but its good because it is made for crap being in your eye irritating it all day long

Thanks, guys.

Yes, I wear contacts.... basically, somehow I mixed up two bottles of solution and instead of putting my contacts in saline all night, they were swimming in this peroxide solution and when I went to go put my contacts in this morning, I thought I had burned a hole into my face where my eye used to be.

My eyeball is all red and the inside of my eye. outside of my eye is fine right now. i'm wearing my glasses, which is covering it up a bit, but the stinging is making me twitch

I will rinse with more saline when I get home later. Thanks Danyel!

Did you get AOsept in it?
Flush with normal saline or water for 10 minutes at least... I got hydrogen peroxide in my eye before because the solution didn't buffer correctly and it hurts like hell, but it goes away in a couple of hours.

Not sure if you have one of those emergency kits, but some of them have a bottle of Eye Wash in them. It helps flush out any chemicals or objects that get in the eye. It's probably nothing but saline so any kind of eye drops would help.

you wear soft or hard lenses?


soft lenses are sensitive to hanging on to that crap, so make sure you clean them well and soak them, then rinse them, before putting it back into your eye

I wear hard lenses now(gas permeable) and they are much more tolerant of accidental chemical stuff and the ability to rinse easier.

If I were you I would call my eye doctor and ask! Although I'm sure it's nothing too serious, an opthalmologist or even optometrist is going to be able to help you way more than a bunch of fashion junkies! You can never be too careful with your eyes!

Sodium , that is the beauty of our forum, we have such a variety of people, that we are not limited to jeans.

However always seek the advice of a medical professional( only you know your body)

Hera is a nurse.


Anyhow, once i also had a contact accident... i had a sample of some solution that has to go in a special contact container with a neutralizing thingy. Well i had only used the thing once, but it was sitting on my counter for a long time. I guess one night i picked up the bottle instead of my usual solution, and put some in a regular lens case, not the special case it is supposed to go with. The next morning i also got a very rude burny awakening as soon as it touched my eye. I called the eye dr and he said it would be really irritated for a while but was not dangerous/extremely serious and would go away. I was pretty much fine the next day .

Definitely! I know I've seen lawyers, dentists, and nurses posting just to name a few. I didn't mean to suggest that the forum can't be helpful for more than just blue jeans! I was just trying to convey that in medical situations, I think it'd be wise to contact a doctor FIRST!

I actually did the exact same thing.

I took out my contacts at a friend's house and didn't realize his solution was different then mine and when I put one in, I couldn't understand why my eye was burning!

I asked my friend and he told me his solution is only to be used with this special contact lens case that prevents the acidic solution from burning your eyes.

I used visine for the nest few days, but my eye still burned and was red.

After about a week I was ok.

I didn't use contacts for the next couple of days though.

I hope you are ok!

I am VERY aware of the warnings on this product. It doesn't seem to work all that well in my opinion, so I like to at least rinse with SALINE SOLUTION before putting it in my eye after it stays in the special container overnight. Well, I was out of saline solution so figured I'd dip it in my 'normal' contact lens case that had some saline solution left in it (or so I thought). It turns out I had mistakenly squirted this stuff in it.

Talk about a burn! The hardest part is keeping your eye open to get the contact lens out!

This stuff should be taken off the market. You can call people idiots and what-not, but the fact is that MISTAKES HAPPEN, and this mistake is just too easy to make.

agree they should take peroxide off the market because people sometimes accidentally put it in their eyes. Also super glue:

Woman Mistakes Superglue for Eye Drops - FoxNews.com

is a common problem that people mistake superglue for eye drops.

I think a real solution is just banning anything that people drop in their eyes.
