I burned a large amount of debris and right after I started experiencing red eyes, pain, tearing, and sensitivity to light and heat. What can I use to treat these symptoms?
You are probably back to normal by now. You probably suffered some superficial corneal abrasions, and these usually heal quite promptly. If the symptoms persist, please see an ophthalmologist.
