Hi, I am 4 months post Lasik as well and I haven't rubbed my eyes consciously yet. I have caught myself doing it a few times in my sleep and nothing has happened. I think it's probably ok to rub them at this point, but I wouldn't do it too often and I would try to do it lightly because yes, your eyes are still healing. The corners of my eyes itch a lot and rub there without a problem but the actual lid I try to avoid just to be safe.
