One pupil is slightly more dilated then the other. I got sheetrock dust in my eye tonight, and then flushed with water. Could this cause anisocoria?
Most likely not: Getting dust in the eye may cause some irritation with redness, watering or pain which resolves in a few days unless debris remains in the eye to cause inflammation or infection. Anisocoria is usually an accidental benign finding and depending on its appearance, may need some work up to determine its etiology. Good luck☺️ ...Read more

How do you soothe an extremely irritated eye? Like an idiot, I grabbed what I thought was visine yesteray, and instead it was that stuff called swim ear. My eye burned like crazy. I immediately flushed it out with water f course. I can see out of it fine
You have a form of chemical conjunctivitis. Some drops for swimmer's ear have alcohol in them in addition to antibiotics - this helps dry out the ear canal.
I would use artificial tears (for the eye) 4 times daily. You should lay low today. If you do not detect serious improvment by the morning, I would arrange for evaluation by your local eye doctor. However, I expect no serious longterm problems.
In general, most eye doctors do not like use of visine. ...Read more
