Ask an Eye M.D. Answer Archive

Please read our important medical disclaimer.

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?

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.
