Eyes should never have a vigorous rubbing. Rubbing your eyes releases free radicals that are not at all helpful to a healthy eye. Check with your doctor, but at four weeks postop you should be able to gently rub the area around your eyes.

Is there really scientific evidence of this?

Considering that full healing is not for 3 months; I'd definitely NOT do it. It's aggravating, but not worth messing up what's been done, yes?
