My son 4 poked himself in the eye today with a small sharp peice of plastic wire no marks or blood, if it penetrated would i know? Would it bleed?

My eye has been hit by a sharp object its scissor in the white part of my eye what could possibly happen?
Minor or serious: It could be minor with no injury at all, or more serious.
