I hope the feeling goes away after seeking medical attention. This is serious and could well be permanent damage. It only takes once :miff:

Visine will help but it isn't the cure all, go see a doctor if the pain lasts more then a day. you may have scorched your retnas

Seriously, your retna's get physically damaged doing that. looking at a super bright light can truely cook your eyes to the point where they will not heal back and you will go blind.

Go to the doctor.

i couldnt find anything on it but i pretty sure my grandpa told me back in the day when it happened to him he went to the doc and was told to cut a potato in half and put it on his eyes. It's probly only going to get worse for a wile anyway. your eyes are pretty much sunburned and blistering. might want to go get those looked at
