Depending on what you got in your eye- the best advice is to get it out as quick as possible – if it’s just dirt or dust, an eye bath can help soothe your eyes fast. If it’s soap or shampoo, use clean water – always read the bottle to see what they recommend.

If you get a chemical in your eye – at work, or at home – it is very important to know the correct treatment –as it is very easy to make the problem worse.
