Re: i have eye mucus when i wear contacts

The mucous is a reaction to an irritation. That could be due to a physical imperfection of some sort in the right contact lens. Are they soft or hard lenses? Hard lenses are the ones most likely to have such defects. It could be a microscopic pimple, chip or scratch that is only visible under a microscope. If they are the hard type, you should take them back to the supplying optician and have them checked.
A less likely but possible cause is an infection, either in the eye or on the lens. That would have to be checked by a doctor. Presumably you do follow the recommended cleaning procedure which should eliminate lens contamination.
