Medical Definition of Chemical eye injuries
There are basically two types of chemical eye injury: acids and bases, with the latter being more severe.
Alkali injury to the eye results in a penetrating injury known as liquefaction necrosis. Acid injury results in coagulation necrosis. Both injuries require immediate copious eye irrigation with water in addition to medical attention.
