Assess why you are rubbing your eyes, stop rubbing your eyes and please make sure that you explain what happened to your surgeon.  Good communication with your physician is so important.  Call her/him today.

Probably nothing

Probably nothing. But you should avoid rubbing your eyes for about a month after surgery to minimize the possibility of sutures coming loose.
