You would have to get awfully close to damage the eye. Serious symptoms would include severe pain, severe blurred vision.
Oh and Happy BIrthday

thank-you so much for your advice.and also for the birthday wish.
I just wanted to know, like if your eyes didn't touch the fire, but were really close to the candles, there wouldn't be any damages, right?

If there were damage severe pain and blurred vision would be expected
