Follow-up care for cleaning chemicals splashed in eyes?

Hi, I'm posting to get some advice on what kind of follow-up I might need, if any, after an incident of getting a small amount of Clorox "Clean Up" disinfectant spray with bleach in my eyes. I did the 10 minute water flush several times afterward, and there was no pain. It's been 24 hours since, with no noticeable vision changes aside from my eyes feeling very dry and tired (and looking a little bloodshot.) They're also a little more light sensitive than usual.

Would seeing an opthamologist be overkill? I'd hate to waste anyone's time with something that didn't need checking.

You should be ok.  See an ophthalmologist is you have continued redness in the eye.
