You Splash Something Dangerous in Your Eye

“Flush the eye with water from the kitchen faucet or spray hose for 5 to 10 minutes or irrigate with a plain saline like solution that’s used to clean contacts,” says Dr. Gillespie. If it’s a chemical substance, like a kitchen cleaner, flush the eye for at least 15 minutes, call 911, and bring the product with you to the ER.

Go to the ER if: You splashed a chemical in your eye, if there’s a change in your vision or if it still feels like something is in there after irrigating (you may have inadvertently scratched the cornea).
