  • It will burn and you want to wash it out right away. Just put your head under the faucet with GENTLE flow of water and wash it out. If your vision is effected or burning continues go to urgent care for proper eye wash to be done.

  • OK... let's clarify 'lemon-juice'... is it:

    Juice from a FRESH LEMON.. or


    If it's a fresh lemon... then it will burn your eyes.. as lemon juice is basically CITRIC ACID... and although it's a weak acid, it will still 'chemically' burn your eyes.... In First-Aid, treat an eye burn with lots of running water... 15minutes of it... THe good news is that, weak acids doesn't damage that much...

    Now if it's soft-drink or cordial... who knows what's in it, but it's not likely to have any real lemon juice... still if it burns, rinse the eye with copious amounts of water.
