Accidentally hand sanitizer got into eye
Accidentally one drop of hand sanitizer got into my eyes. I have washed my eyes properly with fresh RO water for 10 mins. I don't feel any irritation or blurred vision. Just wanted to know is it fine or should I visit a eye doctor and get my eye checked?

Sir if you are not facing any issues then you can just give cold compress to the eyes 3 times a day . Do not rub the eye. If any issues like redness, itching ,discharge from the eye or blurring of vision occurs then I would suggest you to meet any nearby Ophthalmologist. Meanwhile you can start any lubricant Eyedrops like Genteal Eyedrops 1 drop 3 times a day.
