The use of electronic cigarettes (ECs) in smoking cessation continues to increase rapidly since their introduction in 2006.1 Electronic cigarettes are electronic devices that heat a liquid into an aerosol for inhalation. These liquids usually contain propylene glycol and glycerol, with or without nicotine and flavorings, and are stored in disposable or refillable cartridges.1 We report a case of a mild ocular chemical injury caused by inadvertent administration of EC liquid to the eye.
