In brief: Eye infection

Mucous from the eyes may be a sign of an eye infection that may require antibiotic treatment.
A complete eye examination is required.

In brief: See an eye doctor

While it may be normal to have occsional mucus discharge or tearing, continuous discharge should be evaluated.
This may represent an allergic reaction, dry eyes or an infection. Each condition is treated completely differently, and only your doctor will be able to determine how best to treat your eyes.

In brief: See your doctor

Continuous drainage from the eye could be due to a blocked tear duct, infection, or other inflammatory condition.
See your family doctor or ophthalmologist to find out the exact diagnosis and treatment plan.
