Re: what is the stringy mucus i pull out of my eye ball
Infectious conditions that produce sticky mucous can last for years without causing damage or progressing. On the other hand, there is a condition known as keratoconjunctivitis sicca (KCS) for which there is no specific cause but which produces sticky mucous due to under production of normal eye lubricant. It is generally recommended to use artificial tears (Systane or similar) to help lubricate the eyes and disperse the mucous.
Blocked tear ducts can also cause this. Beyond that, constant air conditioning, working at a computer, smoking or a string of illnesses can also produce similar symptoms.
