Hi lil boy, I am Dr Bilal and I am an Ophthalmologist
Welcome to Health Care Magic
I would like to answer your question and your satisfaction is my goal.
As you have given history of itching and watering of eyes and there is a stringy , gloopy stuff and your eyes are sticky as well , it seems as if you are suffering from dry eyes
probably because of meibomian gland dysfunction
/ blockage . Basically meibomian glands secrete an oily substance that prevents evaporation of the eye's tear film . Thats the reason for your itch and watering , and the stringy things are mucus strands which are causing stickiness .
I would suggest you to use artificial tear drops , hot compresses over eyes using a clean cloth and then massage
over the eyelids to get the glands flowing again (twice daily) , antibiotic eye ointment . Your symptoms should improve within 48 hours and will subside in weeks time . Please see an Ophthalmologist , if there is no improvement .
Wish you a very speedy recovery .
Best Regards .
