In brief: Unlikely an issue

A properly vaccinated kid would have about a 5 % risk of ever getting varicella.
Ophthalmic shingles is only contagious through the debris from the lesions, not though droplets like regular chickenpox. If the vaccinated child did not have direct contact with the lesions or debris there would be no risk of infection.
