Eye discharge and severe pain

Edited , 2 users are following.

Ive had eye discharge producing in my lacrimal sac (in the pink corners of my eyes) for a few years now. The discharge is white, thick, and the shape is ball-like. If not removed, my eyes get itchy and watery and then start to burn. The discharge also leaves behind a residue that causes the same problem if not rinsed out with water. When the white discharge is removed, it still produces like 7 hours later.

The beginning of this year, I started to experience intense eye pain. It started in my right eye with a bubbling feeling in my eye than a piercing pain. 2 days later my left eye experienced the pain. The pain is really intense and I cant get any work done. I sleep for hours trying to ease the pain which stops me from completing things I normally would. (Thats how bad the pain is). All I can do is rest my eyes. I’ve been to many eye doctors and all they say is it’s dry eye. There’s no redness or eye infection. I’ve been using eye drops since January and they relieve the pain for a few days but then it comes back. I’ve tried hot and cold compresses too.

I think the pain and the eye discharge are connected to each other. The discharge started burning my eye heavily and now I guess thats why I’m experiencing intense pain? Does anyone know what this is?

    If you have dry eye then you need to use artificial tears eye drops several times a day as long as you have the condition. that includes just before you go to bed. This can be a very long term condition and there is no easy cure. Go easy on the compresses they can make matters worse. The discharge you describe is exactly what dry eye sufferers get. Dont neglect this condition as it may cause ulcers to form on the cornea which are excruciating. You must keep your eyes lubricated. I am speaking from experience. I have had this condition for nearly 20 years. I have sent you a private message.
