In brief: Sure.

As long as the tap water is potable should not have any problem.

In brief: Usually

Tap water in most systems does not contain anything that could be harmful to the eyes.
You get some exposure usually whenever you take a shower or a bath. So unless your water supply is contaminated, you have nothing to fear.
