First aid tips

Before help arrives, there are certain first aid measures you can take to check the extent of the damage to the eye(s) by following a few steps:

In case of chemical exposure:

  • Don't rub eyes.
  • Immediately wash out the eye with water.
  • Continue flushing for 15 to 20 minutes.
  • If irritation persists get medical help.
  • Do not bandage the eye.

In case of a blow to the eye:

  • Don't rub eyes.
  • Apply a cold compress, but don't put pressure on the eye.
  • Take over-the-counter pain reliever.
  • If there is bruising, bleeding, change in vision, or it hurts when your eye moves, see a doctor right away.

In case of a foreign particle in the eye:

  • Don't rub eyes.
  • Pull the lower lid down and blink repeatedly.
  • If particle is still there, rinse with eyewash.
  • If rinsing doesn't help, close eye, bandage it lightly, and see a doctor.
