In brief: Tell ophtho
Call you ophthalmologist.
Do not rub your eyes. Take the drops your surgeon gave you. You should not have pain. You vision is still adjusting but should not be getting worse.

In brief: Not common, see doc
This is not necessarily common, but you need to let your surgeon know and be evaluated.
It may not be serious but as a lasik surgeon, i know we appreciate hearing from our patients early, not later. One possibility is from the flap creation; the pressure can cause sore eye muscles for a few days. Other causes can be inflammation which needs treatment so be sure to visit with your lasik surgeon.
