Time to call your pediatrician. Anytime you see green or yellow it is most likely an infection. And honestly you don't want to put off anything with eyes.

Maybe vomit that he accidentally rubbed over eyes (Arms flaying about, like babies do.)

We don't know. Even if we did, he still needs treatment of some kind, perhaps.

Sounds like an eye infection .. could be caused from a scratch or allergies. Best to have it checked by your doctor.

If his eyes itch a lot, it could be pinkeye. Which is a common infection, and curable. I recommend taking your son to the pediatrician.
