Can semen in the eye cause HIv+?

Apr 19, 2001

please help in putting my mind to rest..On 3/10/2001 i had oral sex during which my partner ejaculated and a part of it went into my eye.There was a burning sensation in my eye.I immediately rinsed it and was fine in a few minutes.How much risk is involved in contact of semen in the eye?
