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.

Why is there a clear liquid on my eye classes from eye discharge?

Why is there a clear liquid on my eye classes from eye discharge?

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.

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!
