    How are your eyes feeling now? I had hair dye in my eye as I was rinsing my hair and it initially burned and felt fine. I rinsed my eyes for about 5 minutes after that but it was the next day when I felt the excruciating pain and I am afraid it is permanent since none of the steroids or anti-inflammatory drops helped!

    It seems that something harmful has got into your eyes. So, it depends on the amount of hair dye in your eyes. As to slight amount, you should use plenty of mild water mixed with salt to wash your eyes until you feel better. However, if the situation is pretty awful, you should wash them first, then head to the hospital for immediate medical treatment. God bless you.

    Please use abundant of clear water to wash your eyes in immediately. You know the tear itself is the best protect solution and humidity to your eyes. It may no big issue at all if the hair dye is not the corrosive medicine. After the washing of clear water, you can adopt some eyes drops. If you feel pain or comfortable, it will mean your eyes get some hurt, but if you forget and ignore it, it may nothing serious at all. It may only lead your eyes to get some inflammation. Then you can go to doctor for the further treatment. However, take care of your eyes, not any time you will be so lucky, the eyes are very subtle and 80% percent of information is taken from the eyes. Hope you will get well soon!

    Components of hair dye are thickening agent, aquae hydrogenii dioxide and benzene, which is a toxiferous chemical colourant. So the hair dye is only for external use and cannot be applied onto the skin, otherwise it will cause the symptoms of irritability, red and swollen and running water, even it an cause pathology. When using hair dye, take care not to get it in the eyes, because it will make your eyes pain and make eyes dry. If you are careless to get hair dye in the eyes, you should immediately wash your eyes with clean water, and go to the ophthalmolongy to have an examination and treatment in time, eyes are quite important organs, after all.

    I would recommend using water to flush your eye out for 15 min. at a time. I recommend this didn't be done at least 2 to 3 times. If you have a significant eye irritation or significantly blurry vision despite this, I would recommend seeing your eye doctor for a complete exam.if the irritation is minimal and no significant vision changes, then I would just lubricate with done artificial tears 3-4x/day over the next few days and keep watch on it.
