The seriousness of the condition depends on the concentration & quantity of the liquid that splashed into the eye. Also, on how quickly it was washed away. If the clear part of front of the eye, called cornea, is not affected, you may get away without any complications. To ascertain if there is any serious injury to the cornea, best way is to get yourself examined by an ophthalmologist. Meanwhile, plenty of cold water shall be used to wash away the liquid from the eye. Some denatured alcohols may also contain methanol, which can be even more toxic. For these reasons, even if your immediate symptoms are mild, better to go for a consultation.
