Ophthalmologist 's  Response
Dear Friend

Molten plastic if falls in eye can lead to thermal burn on the skin and the eye. most of the damage is superficial if there is no chemical involved especially alkali. Wash his eyes with water, and use some antibiotic eye drops, consulting an ophthalmologist will help.
