    gasoline in eye, do i absolutely need medical attention?

    Was under the truck, and found out the hard way that one of my fuel tanks are leaking when a drop of gas found its way into my eye. After screaming and cursing (holy ***** does that stuff burn!), I fumbled my way to the kitchen and used the sink sprayer to rinse it out.

    Now my eye is slighty irritated (feels like the morning after a good welding flash burn), is blodshot, but isn't burning and the vision doesn't seem to be affected.

    Am I good with just putting Visine into it for a day or three, or is this a case of I need to see a doctor right now if I want to keep my ability to see? I don't have health insurance, so I don't want to give an ER $500 to tell me I just need Visine if I don't have to.

    The most they will do is flush your eye (HURTS LIKE HELL).....probably put a patch on it for a few days.

    On a serious note.........I was lucky enough to get Jet fuel in my eye and all they did was flush it, patched it and gave me eye drops.

    Just flush it and use eye drops for a bit if needed. I got fuel in my eyes a couple times when I delivered diesel and unleaded, we used to deliver to some pretty crappy tanks.

    I kinda liked the high pitch whine we were getting.
    I still say a steady stream will cure it or get you a new trip to the emergency room

    Stab it with a screw driver, or a wooden dowel. That'll fix it

    I burned my face a few years ago, 2nd degree burns, eyelashes and eyebrows were gone. They tested my eyes for something, don't know what, but that's all they did. Slightly different scenario but the eye thing is somewhat the same. Just use some lubricant eyedrops, those work really good for eye problems.

    I also got phosphate in my eye a while ago, just do a lot of flushing and drops always help.

    ER doesn't do a whole lot If your life Isnt in danger, can't have a bunch of manginas taking up rooms.
