Brief Answer:
Chemical injury

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
This is a chemical injury to outer layer of cornea.What is to be done is to rinse with water 3to4 times and put lubricant eye drops like Refresh tears eye drop or Tears natural eye drop almost half hourly.Hopefully irritation will subside as healing starts in about 4hours.We need antibiotic eye drops if infection is suspected,not now.
