Risk of Transmission, Possible Ocular Herpes

Hello everyone,

I've been researching and cannot find a definitive answer, and was hoping someone may have been able to talk to healthcare professional about transmission risks of HSV 1.

I was rinsing stuff to put in the dishwasher for my roommates and myself and found out he had been having an outbreak. Unfortunately the rinsed water splashed up into my face and I tried to wash it with handsoap but I think it got into my eye and have been having pressure behind my temple. I'm just worried about ocular herpes and thanks to obsessive googling am now worried about herpes encephalitis developing.

I just do not have the right resources to know what my risks are and was hoping someone out there might. Thanks.
