Brake fluid in the eye

Recommended Posts

Oh...I cannot tell you how bad this burned. And unfortunately, the natural reaction is to clamp the eye shut when you feel it. The pain was terrible...I thought I was going to lose my vision. Finally flushed with some saline solution. Eye visually appears normal, and I can see fine, but it actually still burns a little. Damn, that was scary...

I had that happen to me about 5 years ago while working on an antique rescue truck. I put a new master cylinder in and had my son help me bleed the brakes. He must have been smoking crack that day, because I said "hold up" and he heard "go ahead and squirt nasty caustic brake fluid in my eye" That hurt really bad!
