    I dunno. Be aware when you do it. Or cover your eyes with something like a blindfold (or those eye cover stuff).

    Wash your face before you go to sleep? Overwrite a habit with a new one

    Slap yourself everytime you do it. Your brain will probably realize pretty quickly that doing A = Pain.

    Try lessening it little by little or try another thing to do before sleeping like covering your eyes with your arm > ←something like this so that instead of rubbing it your arm would press onto your eyes. make a routine and make sure to follow it to make it a habit. I tried the same idea back then when I don't really like to read I tried reading short and interesting stories and itreached where I can basically read a hundred chapters per day of the 3000 to 5000 words chapter. I do not know if this will work but try it.

    try to learn what it is that makes you rub your eyes. could it just be from your eyes drying out? if so, I have a similar issue so I use a humidifier near my bed while I'm sleeping to keep my body from drying out otherwise I wake up a mummy~

    if it's not caused by dryness then like Bad Storm said try a blindfold or something that would stop you from being able to rub them, do that long enough and you should be fine.

    I can think of 3 ways
    1. Constantly reminding yourself through willpower
    2. Rub something spicy (like onion) to your finger before sleep and feel the pain after you unconsciously do the habit, your subconscious will always remind you of the pain when you try to do the habit
    3. Make a new habit (like poking ur nose)

    Use a... stunt gun, maybe?
    Chloroform?
    Well, something to make you fall asleep instantly, that way you won't get the time to rub your eyes

    How to stop a Hobbit? Easy, give him a ring and ask him to bring it to the crack of Mount Doom.

    Oh wait... habbit, not hobbit...

    I used to chew the skin on my fingers when younger till it bled. My mother got annoyed and applied chilli on my fingers so I would stop. It worked after the first time I forgot and bit. lol.
    Rub some chilli oil or eucalyptus oil on your hands before bed. I gurantee you that after the first time you forget, you'll never do it again. :p

    cover your hands in a cream that will hurt your eyes when you rub them. After doing it once or twice, you will most likely stop.... or lose vision

    You just changed it. Not stop it. If you're not giving them any dress code then that's stopping.
