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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
|by Anonymous||reply 74||06/27/2013|
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.

Stop using cheap contact solutions. If you have hydraclear lenses, cheap solutions will strip the moisturizing coating right off your contacts, which will irritate your eyes to no end. My doc recommends Opti-free PureMoist or Replenish. A prescription for Patonal greatly helps during allergy season. I haven't had white strings/dry eyes in several years, now that I splurge on better quality solutions.
