hiv through eye(need help)

guys... I am here again
because I read some professional documents
it says eye is still a way to get infected.........if you said I don't need to get test.. can you explain in detail?
then I will be released.....

please help..

about 3weeks ago, I was at bar with my friend(hiv+) ..and under treatment( but donno in detail)
in the middle of talk, he bit his inside of lips while eating, and I saw his blood near his mouth and he wiped that out
several times and kept going talk
and maybe 3~4mins after, when he talked to me , I felt something splashed in my eye and wiped that out immediately ,I am worried that was maybe blood from his lips while he talking..but the amount was less than a drop for sure. it also
can be saliva....or nothing. I am not sure ...

but.,,assuming that was blood..what is my risk? is it high? I need to get tested?
I am so petrified and freaked out now.
please please help me with accurate information
thank you in advance

You need not be worried from this. It was saliva, which does not transmit the virus.

Saliva inactivaes the virus, not enough blood, didn't get into your eye...etc.
