Hi and thanks for your question. Semen can be quite irritating to the eye and it sounds like you rinsed it out immediately which is what would be advised in this situation. It is definitely possible for chlamydia and/or gonorrhea to be transmitted to your eye this way. If infected, the eye would usually remain red and develop a discharge. Antibiotic treatment would be needed. If your symptoms do not resolve and/or you are concerned about the possibility of infection, then having it checked out at a clinic would be advisable.
