A bit ago I accidentally shined my phone flashlight in my cats eye for a few seconds and then I got curious, how sensative is a cat's eye and will it hurt/damage them if I per say accidently shine my phone light at their eye for a few seconds

A few seconds probably did not do any lasting damage, although the cat may have somewhat diminished vision for a few minutes. The real danger is with laser lights, which should NEVER be shone in a cat's eyes. Double care, there.
