    Normally it dose not matter, just take it easy. Everyone feels discomfort with something in our eyes, but in the most of time, our eyes can clear it out with its own system. For example, the tears, they can wash your dirt out of your eyes and then you may feel better. You can use eye drops to fell better if you can not stand. What's more, the vinegar with a little dose can not hurt.

    You will feel uncomfortable when you get the vinegar in your eyes. You need to wash it out with clean water as soon as possible. You could also use the clean cloth to dry it. After that you could use the eye drops with anti-inflammation to clear the eyes. You could also do the warm compress to make your eyes feel comfortable.

    Well, as you can see, vinegar is one of the most acid stuff in the world, which might give rise to some discomfort and irritation to your eyes. Anyway , that is not a very critical problem, you could try to get lots of clean normal saline to flush your eyes, then get some eye drops to deal with it. Most importantly, never rub your eyes, because that would hurt your eyes, even breeds infections. Hope you recover soon.

    You mean the vinegar used in domestic cooking? Actually, please do not worry. The concentration of the vinegar is not that high. The components are water and acetic acid. And the acetic acid is very weak. If it suddenly gets into your eyes, please rinse your eyes with water right away. Repeat if necessary until you feel better. Moreover, you are forbidden to rub your eyes with your fingers and if you still feel uncomfortable, please seek medical attention then.

    Actually, vinegar will not cause any short or long-term damage to your eyes, you just can Irrigate with plenty of water for at least 15 minutes. It is very important to use clean water; otherwise you may get an eye infection. You can use bottled water if you have plenty. If the pain remains you should see a doctor. Vinegar will sting your eyes if sprayed directly into them, so direct contact with eyes should be avoided in the future.
