Treatment by the ophthalmologist or at the eye clinic

- Administer topical anesthesia to relieve pain and neutralize blepharospasm.

- With the upper and lower eyelids fully everted, carefully remove small particles such as residual lime from the superior and inferior conjunctival fornices under a microscope using a moist cotton swab.

- Flush the eye with a buffer solution. Long-term irrigation using an irrigating contact lens may be indicated (the lens is connected to a cannula to irrigate the eye with a constant stream of liquid).

- Initiate systemic pain therapy if indicated.
