Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer

An eye discharge from the eyes is usually seen in conjunctivitis. If greenish or yellow discharge is seen it implies a bacterial conjunctivitis. You need to start antibiotic eye drops like Vigamox eye drops , one drop every 2 hours during waking hours for one week. Avoid warmth to the eyes as it may worsen a bacterial conjunctivitis.

Thanks and best wishes
