Sunscreen's not supposed to be used to protect eyes, but that didn't stop people from trying.
"One of my colleagues ... stated yesterday that they had patients presenting at their clinic that put sunscreen on their eyeball, and presented that they were having pain and they were referred to an ophthalmologist," Patterson said.

She said it only takes a few seconds of staring directly at the sun for retina damage.
I'm sort of surprised that this wasn't headlined "Florida Man Put Sunscreen In His Eyes."

Last I checked, wages were high here and unemployment was low, so probably not. And Redding is like 77% white and fairly affluent. I used to race motorcycles there, and I have a few musician friends who moved there from Eureka.
