Can you tell me what you suggest if pure vitamin e gets in your eyes, would it be healthy acetate not an oil?

No effect: Vitamin E is a benign oil with no topical effect on the eye. Your eyes will rapidly flush out an exposure and most of it goes over the cheek with the first blink. Nothing here to worry about.
