Why are you using omnipred now? It has got steroid and steroids are tapered off ususally in 6 weeks after surgery. Steroids can cause glaucoma if used for long. If you have any sort of inflammation in your eyes, and it has been prescribed by your doctor then it is a different matter. Opti-free replenish is a contact lens solution. Systane or Refresh Tears would be better for you. For white mucous, you should see an ophthalmologist. It could be due to blocked lacrimal apparatus or meibomitis of the lids.
