Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Those dissolvable sutures can cause itching. It is possible, since you are having a lot of watering, that one of the ends of the sutures has poked through your conjunctiva.
The best thing to do is call your surgeon and see if she can see you today or tomorrow. She might need to either trim off the end of the stitch or, if things look healed up enough, she might even remove it.
This is a painless thing to do and only takes a few moments at the slit lamp.
I hope your eyes are doing better, that they are straight and you are not having any double vision.
