Question:
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?   

Answer:
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.
