    It's fine and don't be nervous. Actually, fish oil is beneficial for your eyes. You may feel uncomfortable at first but your eyes will get much better after 10 minutes. Because fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A and DHA, which can decrease the infections in the eyes and keep blood vessels healthy meanwhile help keep eyes healthy. What's more, it can also help reduce inflammation caused by dry eyes, lower high eye pressure and prevent some eye conditions like diabetic retinopathy. It is also a preventive effect to myopia, glaucoma, cataract and many other eye diseases. Study shows that people who consume fish oil daily take its benefit in curing various diseases such as depression, low immunity, eye disorders, ulcers, heart diseases, cancer, and diabetes. Therefore fish oil can do good for our eye health and we should intake fish oil regularly.

    Well, it will be fine to have fish oil getting into your eyes, for fish oil can be good for eyes. So you do not need to worry about it. But if your eyes still feel uncomfortable, I will suggest you have some pure water to wash off the fish oil. And then, you can just have some warm compresses with the soft cloth, in that way, it will just be effective to reduce your feeling. By the way, some eye drops can be applied too. Anyway, just be careful about it.

    The first thing that you must pay attention is no any rubbing or scratching your eyes, or your condition just will much worse. Then flush your eyes with warm and clean water, it may pain and uncomfortable. But it works for washing away dirty matters and dilute fish oil in your eyes. Next use a wet and clean towel to dry water around your eyes gently. Although these solutions still let itching and pain exist, they reduce your unwell. If you stock some basic eye drops at home, now it’s time to apply them. Drop 2-3 drops into each eyes and close your eyes, you’ll be okay soon. However, if all these ways have no effect, visit an ophthalmologist and get details from him/her. Relax, it is hardly to hurt your eyes. Do not use any medicine treatment by yourself. All these emergency should be dealt under the instruction of an oculist.
