I saw an eye doctor a few months ago and he said it was all allergy. He gave me tobramycin for a short term use and patanol for use as needed. This is the worst it has ever been. I do have other health problems. Have had breast cancer in the past two years with chemo and radiation.
It appears you have a combination of allergies and severe dry eyes. I recommend you continue the allergy eye drops as well as artificial tears 4-6 times daily.
The goop is not toxic. It is made in response to irritation, similar to mucous from your nose.
I recommend you see your eye doctor as there may also be an infection which may require antibiotics.
Continue the cool compresses.
