Got some in my eye once. I was filling the caustic tank from 45 gall drums with a pump. I had a full face visor etc but as i pulled the pump out of one drum i knocked off the visor & some splashed in my eye. I immediately turned the water hose on & washed it out. I was surprised that it didn't hurt. I thought i'd better nip over to the medical & by the time i got there it felt like i'd been kicked in the eye. The medic neutralized it & told me that it goes right round to the back of the eye by capilliary action.--Once was enough.
