Extremely unlikely: Unless there is visible blood in saliva, it is not considered a body fluid through which HIV can be transmitted.

Highly unlikely: HIV is essentially a blood borne virus and not usually transmitted by saliva.An infectious disease specialist is best qualified to answer your question,however.

Sneeze: Unlikely to get blood borne disease -- more likely to get a cold or the flu. Hope you got your flu shot!

Eye contact: Eye contact could be a route for infection. Likelihood is hard to say. Did you flush the eyes after the contact with your eyes?
