Thanks for writing to us.

Chloroform has harmful effects in the eyes.
It can cause conjunctivitis and damage to the cornea.

You should wash your eyes properly(including the area beneath the eyelids), with clean, running water for 10-20 minutes.

You should get yourself examined by an Ophthalmologist. You can use dark glasses while outdoors to prevent sensitivity to light.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you have any more questions, I will be happy to help.
