Visible clear film in outer corner of one eye that can be felt & accompanied by excess amount of green "eyeboogers". Do not wear contacts?

When white blood cells eat/ingest bacteria they also produce green enzymes as part of attacking/digesting the ingested bacteria, thus the green color. Deal with the infection. ...Read more
