Question:
I'm noticing that the inside of my lower eyelids are turning white and forming mucus that I can pull out like a piece of sewing thread. I also have been experiencing some eye pain, burning and blurry vision. What might this condition be?

Answer:
Likely conditions are blepharitis, dry eye or eye allergies. The treatment will vary depending on the diagnosis, so you should see an Eye M.D.
