I got soap in my eye and lately my eye has been hurting in the back and feeling funny like a cross eye feeling and I saw a flash of light one time?

If due to a mini-stroke of the nerve's blood supply, some spontaneous improvement is possible. A pirate patch or fogging the glasses with tape will avoid the double vision, but when stabilized, prism glasses might help. Surgery to straighten the eye is possible later. ...Read more
