worried

I was picking at my eye because i had something in it, when i looked at my finger i see dried blood kinda small dotish looking , it wasn't from me or my eye because i checked, so I'm worried that i may have gotten it from somewhere else and didn't notice. So do to this blood and touching my eye, can i get hiv this way ? Really worried ...

You have nothing to concern yourself about.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child
