First time in a long time. Chem in my Eyes.
Permalink  
 


evileye <---- That is pretty much what I look like right now. One eye open and one shut, I was pulling my hose back toward the reel to roll it up today and the barb broke shooting 40% mix in my left eye. My helper was in the back rinsing and I needed water fast so I scrambled for a hose in the front of the house until I got the fire under control somewhat and got my 1st aid kit but my saline wash was pretty much gone so I have to go with Nestle pure life water and a clean shop rag so we could finish the job, man that brought back memories of getting the juice in the eyes for the first time at Mallard and now have a funky headache and all I see right now is a fuzzy halo from my juiced eye.

Hope it gets better, the first time I went to the ER and the doctor gave me an eyecup and saline wash and charged me a lot of money. ER Bill, Dr. Bill some other crazy charges. Now I just do it myself save the money.

Been there done that. I have actually had to drive home with one eye covered because I couldn't see.

Here is a little trick. Next time it happens rinse your eyes or eye out with milk. Think Im kidding? Google it. I learned this aong time ago. Even if you have to ask the customer for some when it happens. Im sure they will be more than happy to help you out.

No kidding! Milk? I will have to try it, I have always kept a bottle of saline solution in my 1st aid kit my helper at first was a pansy and got a mist drop of exterior mix 10% in his eye and fished out in the lawn like he was having a seizure and used almost every drop. So I had to use water and a rag, and I had to drive home with one eye open or kept covering it with one hand since my a/c was irritating it and it was raining.

BTW, woke up and it feels a lot better. This happened before when I was younger so I was not too sure what the outcome would be since I am older now.

Fortunately sounds like no permanent damage. Thanks Larry for the milk trick. The more I think about it though, full-time eye protection when working with chems. may be the way to go ...glta!!!

I talked to my eye doctor yesterday about this. He said it was one of the worst things to get in your eyes.

 I think Acid and S Hydroxide are worse. Still, always carry a eye drop bottle with you, just in case a hose breaks, or other stuff happens.
