Basics: You seem to have had chemical irritation of the sensitive eye structures from the shampoo. I would ignore the "micro-plastics" issue since it is just advertising BS. If your eyes burn or your vision is blurry see a doc.You may have burned your cornea with the chemicals. If it is minor irritation it should fade in a few days.
