Welder's flash eye drynes

I am a engineering student working on my project. I have to do a lot of welding and hence i am blind every morning for the last 3 days. I cant open my eyes and they are red due to dryness. Can you suggest any eye lubricant or drops? I cant go out today as i cant even open my eyes and look at bright light.

Your description suggests that you are afflicted by a condition called "photophthalmitis". We are not supposed to prescribe medications on this type of interaction. You can try to contact me directly, posting it in my name. Then I can prescribe medicines ! Meanwhile, you can get some relief by applying cold packs or washing closed eyes with cold water.
