Do not rub
When your eyes are hurting the best thing is not to rub it. This is easier said than done as our first reaction to an eye irritation is a hard rub. However, this will worsen the situation, causing your eye to become redder, giving you a blur vision.
The problem is that when you rub it you will, most probably, add more dust through your hands.
Ask for help
Stop exploring your eye on your own; it is for your own best interest to ask someone else to look into your eye to see if there is something in it. If detected ask that person to take it out with his hand as he will have a better view of your condition.
Blinking your eyes could work
Blinking your eyes could help in reducing the pain as it produces tear drops which may rinse the dust inside your eye. However, don’t try it too many times because if it is going to work it will only need a few blinks.
By keeping your eye open, splash water to clean. If you are afraid of water hitting your eye it is recommended that you keep one hand on the eye lids.
Blow in your eye
Get someone to gently blow in your eyes, while it may be irritating for you, it could clear whatever was causing the irritation.
Put a wet towel on your eye as it helps in the rinsing process, however, do not rub the tower.
