Eye injury, red and swollen eye. Any first aid?

Respected Doctor, I have two children and the little one is 2 years and 3 months now. While playing, my elder son poked his brothers eyes. The little was fine and slept. At night, the baby is unable to sleep and he is crying. I found his left eye to be red and swollen. As it is mid night now, I don t know if I can visit any Paediatric Ophthalmologist . Pls, guide me on what I have to do. Any first aid? Regards, Boon
