Boric Acid is also used as eyewash.
When the concentration is 10x, it burns.

The fluorescein may be ok in the dilution used by opthamologists, but the concentration does make a difference. The stuff you have is no doubt concentrated. It can be thinned with ethylene glycol.

rhodamine is a carcinogen.
