Someone blew cigarette smoke into my eyes. i forgot to use lubricating eyedrops to rinse eyes. 12 hours later i put in 2 eyedrops in each eye. eyes were very dry and burned from the drops. are my eyes at risk from exposure to smoke unrinsed by drops?

Saline rinses: If your eyes continue to be irritated, please see your physician to rule out conjunctivitis. Smoke is an irritant and saline ocular rinses may be used to relieve the symptoms.
