Just got a yellow discharge in eyes. I think it is conjunctivitis. What else could it be?

In brief: Yellow discharge

Could be conjunctivitis (viral if recent cold & a lot of eye itching) or due to a dry or unstable tear film can be from clogged meibomian glands, demodex, staph on lashes; rarely from immune issue.
