I think (staph) infection in toe. Pus from the toe just squirted into my eye (don't ask :/). Is this dangerous for my eye? What should I do?

In brief: Probably OK

The eye is terrific at cleaning itself out.
The pus that squirted in was mostly blinked out and the rest flushed out by cleansing tears. Only if you find over the next several days that the eye gets red and irritated should you seek medical attention. I am guessing you flushed your eye out with clean water right after the exposure.
