If you touch the rash on your back then touch your eye can it spread?

It depends entirely on what is causing the rash. If it is caused by an infectious agent, then, yes - you could spread the infection. If it is being caused by some kind of chemical, you can spread the chemical if it is still there. On the other hand, if the rash is a delayed reaction or an allergic reaction you can't spread the rash. In short - you can't spread the rash by touching it but you could spread what is CAUSING the rash if it's still there on the skin.
