Do you wear contact lenses?
No i dont
How does that eye look now?
it is a light pink, I should have mentioned I spend alot of time on the computer at work
does this scratchy feeling happen often? only on one eye?
it has happened before, only when I am at work. I work at a camp away from home. It has never happened at home
The scratchy sensation and mucous in the eye is an indication of some irritation to the eye. It can be due to dry eyes as you mentioned. Also, it can be due to eye allergies or something in the environment causing irritation.
Since this only happens at work and not home, it is likely something to do with the environment.
Artificial tears can help with the irritation For eye allergies, you can try an over the counter drop called Zaditor.
thats what I thought I just wanted to make sure it wasnt pink eye
with pink eye, it is usually related to being in contact with someone having pink eye or having a recent viral cold.
Pink eye also last much longer, 2-3 weeks on average.
Okay thank you so much!
