Wild mouse blood exposure

I was using a weed wacker today at work, cutting some longer grass, when i hit a mouse. I realised that i had gotten a drop of it's blood in my eye and rushed to the nearest eyewash station where i rinsed my eye for about 2 minutes. should i consult a doctor or would it be a waste of time?

Eyes (conjunctiva) can one of the routes for absorption. Did you have any complaints following that.

If yes, then please consult ophthalmologic specialist.
