I don't know the cause. I was first aware of it about an hour before I wrote you. My eye was irritated and I realized that I was rubbing it a lot. I noticed that it felt a little sore so I went to look in a mirror. It was red around the area and I noticed the gel looking blob on the surface...like something had leaked . I am not aware of any trauma to the eye. There are no symptoms like fever,eye swelling or blurred vision. I covered it with an eye patch for gentle pressure and fell asleep.

Thanks for the information.
You might be suffering from an eye flu or pink eye. Ideally you need to use antibiotic eye drops after consulting an Ophthalmologist. The other rare possibilities are a foreign body (like a dirt particle) in the eye, inflammation of the eye etc. But in the meantime -
- apply cold compresses to the eye
- use anti-histaminic eye drops (zaditen) which are available over the counter
- lubricating eye drops like genteal/refresh tears/systane etc.
- if there is swelling around the eye, then oral anti-inflammatory like ibuprofen/tylenol etc

Do you have any idea what constitues the gel like blob?
Expert:  Dr. PG replied 5 years ago.
In case you are having an eye flu, then the gel like blob is basically mixture of mucus (thick eye tears) and a little discharge.
