STRINGY EYE DISCHARGE
Stringy Eye Discharge is a form of debris in the eye that accumulates in the corner of the eye. Stringy Eye Discharge varies from person to person and it can either be wet and sticky or dry and crusty. In most of the cases, Stringy Eye Discharge is temporary and occurs when we wake up in the morning but if it is persistent, medical attention should be taken. When a person suffers Stringy Eye Discharge, he/she occasionally notices symptoms of fever, cough, nasal congestion, and body ache, among others.
HOW IS STRINGY EYE DISCHARGE DIAGNOSED?
Stringy Eye Discharge can be caused due to several factors like burning eyes, blurred vision, watery eyes, sore eyes or itchy eyes. The doctor diagnoses Stringy Eye Discharge by performing an eye examination to closely examine the eye.
HOW IS STRINGY EYE DISCHARGE TREATED?
A small amount of eye discharge is harmless, but if you notice changes in the color, frequency, consistency and amount, consult an ophthalmologist. If an eye infection is the cause of eye mucus, your ophthalmologist may prescribe antibiotic or antiviral eye drops and ointments. If eye allergies are making your eyes watery and irritated, over-the-counter antihistamine eye drops and decongestants may relieve symptoms. Warm compresses placed over your eyes may help relieve symptoms of itching and general eye discomfort, as well as help remove eye mucus. If your eyelids are stuck together, the best way to ""unglue"" your lids is to wet a washcloth in hot water and place it over your eyes for a few minutes, before gently wiping away the eye gunk.

This is not a serious problem but can be rather distracting and daunting to constantly have eye discharge.
