White gunk in corner of eye

Does anyone know why this happens? I dont think I always have had this, it seems to have started in the last year or so. I get copious little bits of white eye gunk in the corner of my eyes all the time. I also sometimes get these bits floating accross my eyes.
Thanks for any replies.

Re: White gunk in corner of eye

Many things can cause the eyes to produce extra mucous. Allergies, colds, dust in eyes, etc. The extra mucous normally drains out the glands in corner of eye. For some reason the glands are not open all the way, partially plugged, etc. and the mucous will build up in corner of the eye.

Re: White gunk in corner of eye

I have this same problem too. Tha only difference with me is, that I've had this since I was a kid. It just seems to appear a throughout tha day and night. It's so annoying, I will wipe it out, then some time later, it just appears again.
