These aren''t hardened eye bogers. It''s slimy white stuff, like the string stuck to egg yolks. I pull them out from one corner of my eye to the other. %0D\
How does it get in my eyes, what is it?
bacterial infection. go to a doctor.
Get your cat to lick out your eyes.
Yeah, it sounds like an eye infection. Good luck.
How did you know I have a cat? Guess what, this is really Rumpy. %0D\
I don''t think it''s an infection b/c I''ve had eye strings for years. There''s no pain or itch.
It''s because you''re dirty on the inside.
trying washing your face once in a while you dirty fucker
I''ve had the same thing OP, and I doubt seriously it''s an infection. It seems to be some sort of build-up, maybe from your eyes being too watery.\
Oddly enough, I''ve had the same thing in my mouth at times, these weird slobbery strings coming off my gyms or the sides of my mouth. Yeah, I know. GROSS.\
Who knows what it is but I don''t think it''s infection.
That only happens to people who were adopted.
What I would have said to my little sister
I have it, too. Mouth and eyes.
I get them.... [italic] down there [/italic]
[quote]Who knows what it is but I don''t think it''s infection.\
You are a complete idiot.\
Go to a fucking doctor.
I get them constantly. I think it''s a result of dry eye. I recently started using a new eyedrop (Bausch & Lomb Soothe XP) which seems to have helped reduce the amount my eyes produce, though I still produce way more than normal. Apparently there''s something called "mucous fishing syndrome" where removing the strings from your eyes causes irritation that creates more strings. It''s a vicious cycle that''s hard to break.
Mine are yellow. If you keep blinking, they will come out the corners of your eye. Or use an eyewash. You''ll be amazed what comes out in the cup.
R15, does it taste like egg drop soup?
It''s an allergic reaction to something. If you wear contact lenses, or just use any sort of eye drop solution, you have developed an allergy to that solution.\
If you don''t use any of the above, it''s an allergic reaction to something in the air. \
It isn''t serious but it can be if ignored. Get yourself to an eye doctor, and if you have insurance/can afford it, see an allergist.
Thanks for all the good advice. I didn''t realize other people had this.
You in danger gurl
I know exactly what you mean, OP -- I wear contacts and I get those during allergy season, or sometimes when the weather switches suddenly (when my sinuses flare up).
I''ve been getting these and I think it''s because I''ve started using steam rooms and it''s drying out my eyes and contacts.
What R12 said - it''s mucous.
Close your eyes when your trick cums.
You have dry eye. \
Go to the optometrist and just have that be it. \
R8 and R10, try switching to a non-tartar control toothpaste. I had those strings for YEARS, and they are embarrassing. I told a new dentist, and he said in certain persons, tartar control toothpastes and mouthrinses cause sloughing in the oral cavity.
You are ovulating, OP.
[quote]That only happens to people who were adopted... What I would have said to my little sister %0D\
That is so good r9. Wish I had thought of that a few decades ago. I had my brother convinced we found him in a basket left on the doorstep.
You''re turning into a zombie.
Are you posting from Japan?
Shut the windows
Do you get tonsil stones?
tonsil stone troll
Is OP dead yet?
OP will be dead by Monday, so let''s just push ahead with what''s on his iPod:\
"I''ll Be Seeing You"
This morning I discovered a zit like thing on my lower lid. Any ideas before I go to the doctor?
Sounds like a stie, R33
Cum, OP. Cum.
It sounds like blepharitis. Wash your eyes with baby shampoo when you shower
Whatever it is, I think it''s contagious. I''ve had this since high school after lending a girl in my class a mirror so she could dig the very same thing out of her eye. I believe I caught it from her.
Can I have your stuff?
You have 48 hours to live, OP.
What do you do ... what DO you do?
[quote]Wash your eyes with baby shampoo when you shower%0D\
The eye doc told me this several years ago.
r33, as others said, it''s a stye. From personal experience, the best remedy I''ve found is to use a warm, wet tea bag. The tannins in the tea kill the bacteria in the stye and make it go away very fast. Much better than anything you can get OTC. You can wrap the tea bag in a paper towel and hold it over your eye or do it directly.

You know some queen is gonna have her BF drop his nut sack on her lid before complaining that it didn''t work.
I am so glad to see these comments on here because I have been pulling these strings out of my eyes for about 30 years now & I know it is not worms or an infection or half the comments on here regarding this "condition" I guess we can call it. My mom once told me it is protein strings. I never worry much about them & havent ever asked the Dr, but sometimes I get curious.
OP, are you the person who thinks British actor Luke Pasqualino looks like BelAmi porn-star Johann Paulik? It would explain a lot.
Cum! Quick, kill it with fire?
I get these too and I wear contacts. I line the inside of my eyes with eyeliner so wondered if that may have caused it too.
I switched to an non-fluoride, non-salicylic acid toothpaste and don''t have the mouth strings anymore. It doesn''t really make my mouth feel clean so I''m brushing like two extra times a day.
This doesn''t sound like a condition other than The Human Condition if everybody gets them.
I have the same problem...all day long!
Wash yourself you pig, OP.
[quote] I line the inside of my eyes with eyeliner
Don't even speak to this person, please.
It's caused by dry eye. The doc says to use baby shampoo around eyes and use a very weak solution of eye wash. Not the strong stuff for red eyes, or allergies, etc. or else your eyes will end up requiring a stronger solution.
I get the stuff in my mouth if I use Listerine. It's almost like a thin layer of my mouth lining falls off. Quit using mouth wash for a while and see if the stuff stops.
I'm Having the Same Excact thing but my mom won't take the time to understand this so I'll just have to myself by going to the doctors
That's just NASTY.
Parasitic worms, nothing to worry about. You'll be dead in about six days.
The inside lining of my mouth sheds noticeably too, especially after brushing with Listerine Essential Care toothpaste. We shed millions of skin cells all over our body daily, it's normal for the mouth too. Why it comes of in stringy sheets is a mystery, but it's not every time I brush and it doesn't bother me.
Contact lens wearer who gets "eye strings" too, particularly during allergy season.
[quote]Wash your eyes with baby shampoo when you shower
Do you mean wash the outside of your eyes or the inside of your eyes with the shampoo?
Y'all do not know what you are talking about. All the white gooey stuff is, is buildup of the "dead bacteria". Your MAST Cells are your first line of defense against bacteria in most of your open surfaces. As these cells break down bacterium, it leaves the reminance of the bacteria cells in your eye, which ten build up. It's not infectious, and is not dangerous. If you don't pull it out, your eye will push it to the corner where it will dry, harden, and fall out.
I have them all the time. I have had this problem since I have wore contact lenses. which that has been around 6 years now. i don't really know what it is, though. It doesn't hurt, its just kinda weird.
When a man loves another man very much...
White strings / blowin through my eye
High price to pay / For us to unwind
R8 In the mouth are ulcers. I used to get those and my dentist had me switch toothpaste to Pepsodent.
OP, it sounds like allergies. The allergy season has been long and strange this year because of the disruptive and abnormal fluctuations in heat and rain. I use a Neti pot (Mary!) every night. You'll be terrified and amazed at what your sinuses have been storing.
It could be an infection or something like conjunctivitis, however that is usually accompanied with itching and irritation, the area around the eye swells up and is tender. If its just the goo and nothing else, then its probably just allergies.
You should see what's in my ass!!!
The doctor said it's caused by dry eye. He said to use a few drops of mild eye wash, NOT the kind for red or irritated eyes. A few drops in the morning and a few drops in the afternoon and you won't have the problem. Also use baby shampoo around the eyes to clean them while in the shower.
r72 is it blepharitis? I developed that last year and it's a fucking nightmare. I already had dry eyes for years cause of eczema and couldn't put contacts in, so it was kind of an inevitable development.
Keep up your eye hygiene religiously, you don't want that!
I'm interested in the neti pot, r69. Have seen stuff about it and wondered about it.
Wash your fucking face, you pig. Hot soapy water for face and eyelids. Flush your eyes with warm water.
For Christ's sake, how stupid are you people? You don't have the brains to buy a bottle of eyewash?
BTW, eyewash does not = eye drops.
Eyewash is purified water, saline and a weak boric acid solution.. Buy it at your local pharmacy; it comes in a generic label for all you cheapasses who want to save a couple of dollars -- don't make your own. It needs to be sterile. Comes with an eyecup so you can squirt the eyewash into the cup, then put the cup on your eye. You open your eye and let the weak solution bathe your eyeball.
Then you wash the eyecup with soap and hot water.
You also make sure to wash your hands several times a day so you don't rub your eyes with dirty fingers.
Basic hygiene, people.
