Save me from the pain of chilli-in-the-eye.

Last night when I was cooking I was foolish and rubbed my eye, after chopping chillies, but before scrubbing my hands.
The pain went away only after a good half an hour's rinsing my face with cold water. Is there a better, or recommended, way to make the pain stop?
I am generally fairly good with chilli-discipline, and am not interested in hearing about the preventative measures I already use: I know that sooner or later I'll inevitably defeat any possible security measure and poke myself in the face again. I'd like to be prepared to face that eventuality.
