Today I fucked up: Guess which one I put in my eye?

On the bright side, my right eye is now free of all that wax.

EDITED: Post was removed for lack of context so... There are two bottles. They look similar. One is for ear wax removal while one is a bottle of eye drops.

Pre-coffee and groggy, I grabbed the ear wax drops and dropped a couple into one of my eyes. It hurt and I felt like an idiot.

EDIT #2: Post was removed for violation of sub rule 2E) Nothing significantly bad happened to you as a result.

So to continue from where we left off: Ear-wax drops contain hydrogen peroxide, which Consumer Med Safety refers to as "a painful mistake" to put in your eye. Their story checks: It was painful.

I was able to flush my eye out with water pretty quickly, though there was a lingering burning and redness for quite some time.

It didn't warrant a trip to the ER, thankfully, unlike many of the commenters who have stories of mixing up eye drops and super glue (I can't even).

Though it wasn't as painful as the time I had bear mace directly contact my eye (that's a whoooole 'nother TIFU),

I strongly recommend double-checking any and all bottles of eye drops before using them.
