Thanks for sending your query to us.
There is a slight injury to corneal epithelial inter cellular substance.This leads to varying degree of irritation depending upon exposure.
Lubricating drops almost 1-2 hrly to be put in the eye will give you relief.
Please do ger back to me in case of any further query in this regard.
