    i was cleaning a carb for a chainsaw and i shot some carb cleaner into one of the jets and it came right back up into my eye, i quick ran inside and flushed it for 20 minutes, it was really red for a couple hours but the pain finally went away, i've worn safety goggles ever since when using anything that sprays out under pressure, eyes are something you can never get back once gone..

    I usually just squirt some right in my eye to get it over with.
