The third eye suggests that we may soon see a more important, and conceivably more evil, manifestation of our familiar Stephen Strange.

The longer answer is that there are a many other characters and powers, both from within this movie and outside of it, that the appearance of the third eye evokes.

First, and maybe most obviously, there's the so- called Sinister Strange that our regular Doctor Strange meets in an alternate macrocosm before in the movie.
