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.

I'm sort of surprised that this wasn't headlined "Florida Man Put Sunscreen In His Eyes."
