Smoke In My Eyes...Ouch!

A week ago, I was at a function with a club in which I was a volunteer cook. I cooked burgers and hot dogs for everyone there. I used an outdoor grill which they provided me with.

After cooking for about an hour, I had to stop because the smoke coming from the grill started irritating my eyes pretty badly. But by then everyone had been fed anyway.

An hour later, my eyes were still hurting me. I've never experienced pain in my eyes due to smoke for a whole hour before.

Finally, the pain went away.

However, if the pain hadn't gone away when it did, I probably would have gotten a bit worried about my eyes.

I’ll bet Visine and a lot of blinking would have done the trick.

Bobnnat, I did use eye drops right after I stopped cooking, which seemed to help.
