Mucus discharge from eye. Watery and blur vision. Is it infection?

Hi, I have a greenish-yellow mucus discharge that keeps coming out from the corner of my eye. It also is laying around my lower eyelid , and is stringy. My vision in this eye is starting to be blurred whenever there is a lot of this substance on/in it, and is also watery. I have been wiping it off with a tissue . Could this be pinkeye?

This appears to be some longstanding case and associated with watering. I think you should get your lacrimal drainage system checked by springing as at times if there is bloachage of the tear duct then stagnant tear fluid gets infected with bacteria and produce watering and discharge, a condition called dacryocystitis, which should be ruled out in your case.
