Hi, I'm female @, 57 yrs . I'm having eye pain. My right eye has thick gloppy stuff inside the eye. Eye lids are sticking together. Could this be some kind of eye infection? My eye feels strange & painful, but my vision seems fine. What should I do

Hello
Welcome to Health care Magic.

I reviewed your history.
It seems from the history that you are having symptoms of yellow discharge from the eye associated with stickiness of the eyelids and pain.

My response to your question is as follows.

These symptoms indicate infection of the eyes in the form of acute conjunctivitis probably of bacterial in etiology.
This requires treatment by the use of antibiotic eye drops and anti-inflammatory drugs.

Hence I advice you to consult your doctor for examination and treatment accordingly.

Hope this information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for any further questions and I will be happy to answer and assist you.

Thank you
With regards
