Thanks for posting your query.

I think you should seek medical help and visit an eye specialist or your family doctor at the earliest.

There are all the chances that due to hot oil there will be burns in superficial layers of eye.

You ideally need,

Analgesic drops
Antibiotic drops
Steroid drops.

Please do not ignore this, as at times there can be permanent damage to the layers of eye and some compromise in vision.

I hope this helps.

Wishing you good health.
