Other cause: Sperm is benign and will not harm the eye. If your eye is still bothering you then check 1) whether the donor of the sperm has gonorrhea or some other STD, 2) whether the eye drops were contaminated or of the wrong type or 3) whether what you used to rinse the eye was contaminated. If the eye is getting red and especially if the vision is dropping, then see an ophthalmologist pronto.
