can axe brand universal oil (axe brand medicated oil) cause blindness?

there's this medicated oil that contains a strong minty mixure of menthol, eucalyptus, and camphor which produces a minty smell  it is called MInyak cap kapak  which in english terms is known as either Axe Brand Medicated Oil or Axe brand Universal Oil  and is very popular in Singapore and other parts of Asia.  I've been wondering if it can truly cause physical blindness if that stuff gets in the eyes

    It it will cause blindness from irritation you won't be able to keep your eyes open and they will water profusely. It probably won't destroy your optic nerve but it will be very painful in your eyes and it's very hard to get out.

    It would sting badly and if not washed out could cause chemical burns.

    Find out what the pH of it is and if there is any acids or caustics used in its manufacture.    For example to extract camphor oil, they might soak the wood in a caustic solution to help extract the oil. Who knows?
