Default Eye emergencies

What do you keep in a first aid kit for eye related emergencies?

I just had one and felt woefully unprepared despite having a fine first aid kit.

I don't keep anything specific for eye injuries in my first aid kit but as a contact lense wearer, I always have a bottle of sterile saline rinsing solution I hand.

I'm thinking I need a bottle of that, mainly. I needed to flush an eye and I know water want ideal, but, emergency.

I have spring bottled water dispenser (cold feature not used). We're trained to flush & call dcp. I hope your eye flush worked. Eyes can get scratched fairly easy.

It's not in my first aid kit, but I have one of those eye flush cups and a bottle of saline solution that I keep just for that (eye flushing). I tend to get stuff in my eyes a lot so I keep it on hand.
