Eye Wash Kits

Eyewash kits are an essential item that should be part of every first aid kit. In the event of an accident – such as getting grit or harmful chemicals in the eye – having sterile eye wash solution on hand could help prevent permanent damage.  

Eye injuries should be treated immediately due to the delicacy of the eyes. That’s why it’s so important to include eyewash solutions as part of your everyday first aid essentials. We don’t always have running water available; and when we do, we cannot be sure the water isn’t contaminated. Saline solutions are the safest way to clean the eyes, not to mention a lot more convenient to use than a tap.

Our selection of eye wash kits ranges from complete kits that include eye dressing and 500ml solution bottles to handy mini eyewash pods – perfect for on the go.

Cleaning an eye injury is as important as any other cut, graze or bump. It should be dealt with urgently and with care. The first moments after the incident could be the difference between permanent damage or not – particularly if it involves hazardous liquid or foreign bodies. Not only that, it offers instant relief from irritation and inflammation.

We’ve answered some of the most common FAQs below.

  • Do first aid kits include eye wash solution?

    Most reputable first aid kits will include an eye wash solution as standard. This is particularly important if you’re a business owner, as eye injuries are extremely common. Workplaces that are at greater risk of eye injury are recommended to have additional eye wash stations available to staff who may need to be treated quickly.

    In general, if running water is not available at the scene of the injury, then it’s recommended to rinse the eye with eyewash solution, carefully following the instructions on the bottle.

    The NHS advise flushing the eye for 10-15 minutes after the accident and seeking medical assistance afterwards – especially if there are still foreign bodies after flushing

    Be sure to check that the bottle is sealed before use and still in date.

  • What should be in an eye wash kit?

    Eye wash kits and eye wash stations should include dressing and an appropriate amount of sterile eye solution in line with the business size and environment.

    Our complete eye and wound wash station is ideal for workplaces, schools and public buildings as it securely fixes to the wall and includes everything you could need to treat an eye injury, including a mirror for self-administration. We also advise that eye wash stations are accompanied with an eye first aid poster with easy-to-follow steps for the user.

  • How to use eye wash solution

    The good news is that eye wash solution is simple to use. There are two ways to administer the solution in most cases: with a nozzle or by cup. The most common way is by cup, as not all solution bottles come with a nozzle. Remember to remove contact lenses before flushing the eye. 


    1.    Fill the nozzle with the solution by squeezing the bottle (the applicator should not touch the eye surface).

    2.    Open and keep your eyes wide whilst leaning back.

    3.    Flush the eye as needed.


    1.    Pour the eye solution into the cup to thoroughly coat the eye.

    3.    Place the rim of the cup over the eye. This should be held firmly to avoid leaks.

    4.    Quickly tilt your head back whilst opening the eye wide. Roll and rotate your eyeball around whilst the solution is over the eye to submerge it entirely.

    5.    Rinse the cup with clean water.
