Dr. Rick :

Hi. No, mucus is not a bad thing. It is usually from a dry eye issue or allergies.

Dr. Rick :

A tinge of blood once in a while is also not anything to worry about as it can come from a plugged up meibomian gland that opens up and cleans itself out etc.

Dr. Rick :

None of these issues should be of concern when it comes to the surgery you are going to have.

Dr. Rick :

I see that you are typing and that could mean a couple of things: 1. you are actually typing or, 2, the chat system has frozen up. I'll give it a few more minutes and if I've not seen anything from you I'll switch over to the Q&A system. That system works a lot like 'text messaging' but, unlike the chat system, it almost never freezes up. We can continue to work on your question there. :o)

We have been experiencing problems with the chat system for the last few days. Our engineers are working on it.
