In brief: Don't do it
You should only use ophthalmic medication around the eyes for obvious reasons.
Use artificial tears to wash out your eyes then go see your eye md to make sure everything's okay.

In brief: Irritation
Some of the medicine is leaking into the eyes.
Next time apply a little further away.
