Violence be it mental or physical is always wrong. But what you did regardless of it being an accident, hurt and surprised him, and he lashed out because of it. Even if hurting others is wrong, I still believe that if you hurt others you should kind of expect to be hurt back.
No, he should'nt have hit you, but remember that you (even as an accident)
caused it to lead down that route.

Were you aiming for his eye or face? Cause that's a big no no. If it was purely by accident ( like you meant to throw somewhere else or he happened to move so it hit his eye) and you genuinely apologized you didn't deserve to get hit. But I would get mad, I don't think I'd hit you though. Maybe a slight slap but that's it or cursing I don't know.
