Golden Retriever Eye Discharge
Eye discharge: Eye discharge can be from many reasons. If it is watery and a little crusty, it may be due to dry eye, blepharitis, viral conjunctivitis, or any cause of ocular surface irritation. This is treated with artificial tears and topical steroids in some cases. If the discharge is more abundant and is whitish pus in nature, it may be bacterial and may need topical antibiotics.See 2 more doctor answers
Discharge can be a noun or a verb; it has multiple meanings in physics, chemistry, military, and legal usage. The most common medical meaning is a substance that is being excreted. Examples: pus is the discharge from a pimple; a vaginal discharge can mean infection; an ear discharge can mean an infection of the outer ear tract; a nasal discharge ...Read more
Usually: One of 3 causes; bacterial or viral infection or allergies. Sometimes difficult to distinguish between the 3 causes, but viral conjunctivitis is usually occompainied by cold-like symptoms and allergic may be occompainied by other allergic symptoms like runny nose and sneezing. Bacterial usually has heavy drainage causing eye to be matted shut. If you have a painful red eye, see your doc urgently.
Blue discharge?: This would definitely be strange and is worth having your eye doctor look at and examine your eyes.
Possibly infection: Better have a eye examination by an Eye MD to diagnose the problem. You may need treatment. Eyes do not normally smell (they see) and discharges ordinarily have no odor, unless bacterial or fungal (or retained foreign body) infection is present.
Condensation?: Your eyes produce tear which is a clear liquid. When your lenses are pressed up close (leaning head on pillow/couch with glasses on?) to the eye, the vapor from your eye can condensate on the lenses and may appear a bit wet. This happens more often if you have watery eyes--when someone cries, his/her glasses often get foggy. Hope this explains your case. Consult doc. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
My kid has a lot of eye discharge after waking up in the morning, so much so that eye lids are stuck together?
What can I take to prevent eye discharge? I often have eye discharge all the time and I was wondering if I can do at home remedies to help it. Thanks!
Eyewash: For watery eye discharge, caused by environmental irritants, mild viral infections, trauma and allergies, frequent irrigation with refrigerator-cooled eyewash or collyrium helps. Avoid rubbing your eyes as this always makes it worse. Dry your eyes with a Kleenex or eye pad. If it doesn't respond in a few days (less than or equal to 4), see your eye doctor. The very best of wishes!
Mucus: The eye normally produces tears and other materials to keep it healthy. It is not uncommon to have secretions in the corners of your eyes sometimes. Seek out an eye doctor to make sure it is not something more serious. Have a great day!
Not much: Usually goes away in a week or so. Take antibiotic drops if not viral, and it will make it go away a few days earlier.
