What is the cause of continuous discharge from the eyes?

Q: I am 22 years old and suffering from high myopia since I was 9 years old. My power is -10 & -9. I was using contact lenses five years ago. But discontinued due to a hole in my retina. I underwent cryopexy. I have again switched to lenses from the past 9 months. I am feeling uncomfortable as there is a lot of drainage of thick jelly like fluid from my eyes, which is causing blurred vision. The drainage was present even before using the lenses, but now it has increased. How can I get rid of glasses and lenses?

A:It seems you have infection in your eyes, which is causing discharge. Your moderately high myopia causes eye strain and tiredness, after which you rub your eyes that causes infection. You must see an eye doctor to get it cleared. In view of your retinal problem, refractive eye surgery is not advisable and you may end up with worse vision than present. Contact lenses should be satisfactory for you all day and you should change to glasses in the evenings to relax your eyes but no contact lenses in the presence of eye infection. Try not to read very small prints or in dim light which makes myopia worse. There is no risk free method at present to get rid of your glasses and contact lenses.
