No you won't stop normal tear production. If your vision is good and there is no severe pain try buying artifical tears and using every couple of hours waking hours.  That small amount of clorox will not normally cause bad problems.

i hate to bother you,i just don't understand why i am still having dry and mild irritation still? you are correct about the Clorox because both my eyes are irritated not only the right one that got rubbed,how long before this resumes to normal in your expert opinion?would you agree at the possibilities of all the water and pressure  causing this? thank you again,i understand if you are to busy to answer back

no need to visit a dr for that one, simply ignore & use artificial eye drops as much as you like for 1 week or so. it will clear by itself.
