    So I was cleaning my taurus 9mm and xd45 last night. Cleaning the barrel, I pull out the rod and a drop of solvent flicks and goes in to my eye.

    It burned like HELL!!! I ran to flush my eye out, as I blinked furiously. I flushed my eye for like 10 mins then put a cold rag on it.

    Vision is fine, but my eye seems a bit dry today. Anyone ever have this happen? Pretty scary.

    One time I had an ex working on my barrel and she ended up with a little solvent in her eye. I've never had it happen to myself when working on my own barrel, however.

    I have gotten it in my eye before.

    It fixed my astigmatism.

    Eye tissue is very resilient, and the cells regenerate rapidly. You reacted appropriately, and you'll probably be fine.

    Forget Lasik, just drop a few drops of Hoppes in your eye for 20/20 vision!

    Wait. You've also had gasoline and rubbing alcohol in your eyes too? :bcr:

    Safety glasses, seriously. Get some!

    i haven't personally, but people i know have. my dad is old school and does everything himself. he paints all his cars and stuff.

    he probably swallowed and put every known chemical on the planet in his eyes

    I have had a face full of gasoline before when I was 16 it fucking sucked. I stuck my face in the dogs water bowl while my brother ran and got the water hose. Never again will I cyphon gas out of the lawn mower to put in my car.

    That makes sense considering one of the ingredients in Hoppes is kerosene.
