Dear user
It seems from the history that your grand daughter is sufferring from upper respiratory tract infection with conjunctivitis. Since the discharge is greenish mucoid, it shows severe infection of conjunctiva. The child needs to be treated with antibiotic eye drops and oral antibiotics. You need to consult near by paediatric doctor for further treatment.
