My child ate a glow stick or got the liquid in their eyes. Are glow sticks toxic?
Glow stick liquid is minimally toxic if ingested in small amounts, such as a lick. It can also irritate the eyes and will need to be rinsed out with clean water.
Glow stick liquid may cause irritation if exposed to eyes.
If your child got glow stick liquid in their eyes, rinse by pouring clean, lukewarm water across the affected eye(s) for 15 minutes.
For more instructions, please see our page on eye exposure information.
