In brief: Probably not
But remember that tap water is not sterile, nor particularly lubricating.
It is better to rinse the eyes with lubricants or specially formulated eye wash.

In brief: Water into eye
Yes as long as the water is clean and not to hot.
Always be careful when doing something with your eyes.
