Eye damage would certainly be possible if the cold was extreme enough but I don't think -30 is close to that level at all.

I've spent over half an hour outside on numerous occasions with temperatures in the -30s and windchills in the -40s, and while a strong wind can cause watery eyes (as mentioned by Glacierx) it never caused any eye problems beyond that for me.
