Take antihistamine .: Your eye got most likely irritated and created as if " allergic reaction' to irritants. If you properly irrigated it should be sufficient . Do not rub it!To relief watering try to take daily anti - histamine as Zyrtec ( Cetrezine) or Allegra ( fenoxfenadine) - 1 tab daily. If any blurred vision , discharge, more pain swollen , red lids - see doctor ASAP.
