    First, you should immediately wash your eyes with plenty of clean water for 15 minutes, try to wash the spray away. This may ease the pain and burning feeling in the eyes. Then you may use some antiphlogistic eye drops to prevent infection. Since there are chemical substances in the bug spray, if necessary, you'd better go to hospital and have a careful eye examination.
