Will the puss that squirt from my friends bump into my eyes form a bump in my eyes ?

I had a friend who has a large red bump on her leg. She has had a staph infection before. In fact she went to the ER tonight and they said the other one was an absess and they cut and drained it. They gave her bactrium. The other bump she was messing with tonight and I was sitting beside her. She popped it and when she did....the puss squirt into the very corner of my left eye. I went and flushed my eye with water for 1 minute and then washed my outer part of the eye with soap and water. Then I ran about a half of bottle of visine in my eye. WHAT DO I NEED TO DO...just in case it was staph? how do I prevent it from growing in my eye....Is there anything I can do to make sure it doesnt pop up if this bump is staph?

Good Day
You have done the right thing by washing your eye immediately. Don't worry. Wait for a few days. If you experience any itching, pain and watering from the, go show an Ophthalmologist.

Hello and welcome to healthcare forum.
As you said that as soon as the incidence happened, you washed your eye thoroughly, you should not worry regarding it, if you do not have any preexisting eye condition. Still as prophylactic, you can use antibiotic eye drops.
Best wishes for your health
