Have you ever accidentally squirted something in your eye that didn't belong there?
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Not in my eye but others eyes.
Last month i picked up what I thought was eye drops and put it my left eye. Turned out it was ear drops?? Burned like H..
I was doing an operation and my co-surgeon reached in with a scalpel and accidentally hit a vein. Blood shot straight up over my face guard and hit me in the eye. It was gross.
So much for normal PPE doing its job…
Oh, you don's want to know this. I was blowing leaves. There was a pile of dog poo. Life is hard.
I drink water with lemon all day, every day. Trying to squirt in the lemon and keep control of the seeds can send those droplets in odd directions. ...I should probably juice the whole lemon and store in something with a spout. Eureka!
I smashed a bottle once and got a piece of glass in my eye
No, but once I was watching fireworks and a small piece landed in my eye. Stung for a week, but no permanent damage, thankfully.
Hurt like hell at first, though - ran inside and held a wet washcloth to it. I was wearing my glasses, so it was just bad luck it hit at that angle!
Nitric acid, I don't recommend trying that.
Not squirted, but don't rub your eye with Thai pepper juice on your fingers. Ouch!
My eyes have always been where they belong.
I was thinking the same thing HA!
Acid. Not fun.
Silence is golden.
Lemon juice :'(
Toothpaste flung off of my brush once. Ouch!
I got toothpaste in my eye for the first time this year. I honestly thought I was going to lose vision it hurt so badly. :( My eye was pink for like 8 days, but thankfully it's 100% better now.
I'll bet it's the gritty abrasive in the toothpaste that causes most of the irritation.
It really does hurt. Nothing quite prepares you for it. 😑
Yesterday (today to this all-nighter), I was forcing a bottle of no-fray to work and it suddenly squirted so furiously that it sprayed my glasses, my eye, and a 9" splotch on my shirt. This project is so annoying… Surprisingly, my eye seemed…
fine. I rinsed it out and only 15 minutes later, could hardly tell that anything had happened to my eye. My shirt on the other hand… wow it's stiff!
Good thing you rinsed your eye. Any idea what's in it? I had never heard of it before.
I'll have to check later. All I know is that the packaging said to rinse with water and contact a physician if irritation persists.
Oh, don't go out of your way to do that. I was just curious... I could probably look up online anyway.
