What might cause chronic, thick eye discharge?
There are many causes of such a problem, such as allergy, dry eye, and chronic irritation. I urge you to see your ophthalmologist to get to get to the bottom of this problem.Helpful? 2 people found this helpful.
What is a fluorescein angiogram?
A fluorescein angiogram produces photographs (not X-rays) of the blood vessels inside the eye. It can be used to observe the structure of abnormal blood vessels under the retina and to detect circulatory and other problems in the eyes.
A dye called fluorescein is injected into the bloodstream. And a camera takes photos that can show if a person has abnormal blood vessels or leaks in the blood vessels of the eyes.

Should I see a doctor if my eyes are oozing mucus?
Eye allergies can cause itching, tearing, and redness of the eyes. If you have mucus matter and water, you may have an infection of the conjunctiva (the membrane that lines the inside of your eyelids and covers the white parts of your eyes). Many external eye infections, especially those caused by viruses, are self-limited. You should have an eye doctor examine your eyes if the discomfort and discharge last more than a few days.
