Those who have unfortunately gotten sunscreen in their eyes know firsthand just how much it can hurt. In fact, someone who has experienced a severe case may compare it to mace or pepper spray. It can be a while until the victim can comfortably open his eyes, particularly in the glaring sun.

There's no doubt getting sunscreen in your eyes is likely to ruin a day by the pool in an instant. Although it is common that discomfort will last for a while, it is important to tend to it as soon as possible.

The best treatment is to put the eye beneath running water for a while. Doing so should rinse the sunscreen out of the eye however it probably won't ease the stinging at once. For discomfort, cool, wet cloths to the eyes may have a soothing effect. Eye drops such as ClearEyes may help in cleaning out the eye, but it is likely they will burn.

Don't forget, even though the summer is coming to an end, it is advised to use sunblock throughout the year to protect your skin from dangerous UV rays.

Prevention

  1. Never spray sunblock directly on the face. Apply to the hands and rub into the face.
  2. Never allow small kids to apply sunblock alone.
  3. Keep lotion out of reach of children.
  4. Don't let small children rub in sunscreen. If they get it on their hands they may rub it in their eyes.
  5. Be very careful not to apply sunblock too close to the eyes.
  6. Use sunglasses to protect the eyes and the areas around them from ultraviolet rays.
