What causes mucus build up in the eye when wearing contacts?
i was actually looking for the correct term but i saw my eye doctor he told me things form on the inside of the eyelid (pepulla or a P word i forget it). These are caused by the contact constantly rubbing against the eyelid while u blink. These bumps on your eyelid also produce an extreme amount of mucus, this covering ur eye in a very uncomfortable film. Some solutions: Get daily contacts so that ur eyelid gets a smooth new surface every day and is not being scratched by a 2week old contact. Also dont sleep with your contacts in, and wear glasses around the house to give your eyes a break. I hope i was a help to you! If u feel like replying to me with the proper term for this illness or to say thanks please do so at KurtisDaigle@hotmail.com Thanks.
