Re: Desparate for answer about constant eye discharge

I have chronic dry eye and get the stringy discharge because my eyes are not hydrated enough. Some of my symptoms are a burning sensation, feeling like my eyes are often gritty, sensitivity to sun, reflux tears, redness, crusty-stuck together eyes in the morning. I am receiving treatment from an opthomologist, but one of the things that is most effective is the use of Refresh brand eye drops. I prefer the Liquigel or Dry Eye formluas.

I am not sure if you have any other symptoms, but I hope this helps.

I have had the same symptoms for years. My eyes are itchy sometimes at night and during the day. They look red on my eyelids all the time, people often ask me if I have a stye on my eyes. I get the stringy discharge in my eyes all the time it's so bad that sometimes it covers over my eye. I went to an eye doctor a few years ago and he said the cause of this was that the eyelid glands get clogged.Hope this helps you.

Re: Desparate for answer about constant eye discharge

Chelsea.
Have you been seen by your eye doctor recently? Be well worth it to get a definite diagnosis. You may have Dry Eye Syndrome, Blepharitis or any number of other eye problems.

There are treatments for the above that may help, so please make an appointment. A drug such as Restasis may help, but can only be prescribed by your eye doctor, after a definite diagnosis.

In the meantime, you can try over the counter drops like the Refresh, Systane, BionTears, etc. Look for ones that come in vials, that are preservative free. Try a humidifier at night, and also do hot compresses at least twice a day.

Hope this helps a bit & Good Luck!
