    For the last four years ive had a white gooey stringy substance coming out of my eyes and my eyes are always bloodshot and sometimes swollen. Ive been to a doctor about it and she said she didnt know what it was so she pretty much told me to go away. But recently the problem has been getting worse. I was on holiday and around the 7th day my eyes started producing this substance, and my eyes became extremly irratated. I tried to use my finger to remove the gooey from my eyes but when I got it out of one eye more would be in the other, my eyes became completely red and the pain was unbearable and I was crying. Then my friend told me that a girl had been on this show with similar symptoms, but I cant find anyrthing about it on here. Im really worried incase I really damage my eyes im quite scared. Im going to the doctors as soon as possible to see if they will help me, but does anyone else have any idea what it could be? Please help!

    Hi Im not sure if anyone has answered this but you should go to your gp and if they ignore you then go to another one because it may be nothing but at the same time it could be something. As there are many problems that can occur with one's eye's its best to follow it up. Not worth going blind now is it!

    I'm 14 (so I'm guessing its a bit of an unusual age to get very watery eyes) but my eyes water with the slightest of wind, sunlight, when I lie on my side and even when applying moisturiser or face make up. But I think there's something wrong with my eyes, the shape of them are perfectly normal but I seem to have just a pink/red gap between my actual eyeball and the outer edge of my eye, like the opposite side to my tear duct, could this be why my eyes are so watery, if so is there anything I can do about it?

    Hi!! I don't know you and I don't know what's wrong either but I'm fourteen and I have the exact same thing!! I don't know anyone else who has it and its killing me because there's nothing online about it. Your not alone, my eyes water like that too.

    I am also 14, and I have exactly the same problem, my eyes have been watering since about last year. my eyes water all the time in all conditions even inside, when I'm at school I usually just use tissue to wipe away the water but it gets so annoying and gets in the way. I've been to the doctors and they have me eye drops that didnt help at all, they said it was because I wear make up but they water even when I don't. I went to the opticians and he told me that I don't blink all the way, I was very surprised as I thought I did, and I think I still do now, I hope it's just a thing that will pass over time.

    I have always had watery eyes, I'm 17 now and still do.... They mainly water when; I look at other eyes, think about eyes, confrontation with people and just randomly sometimes :( Why???

    Hi im 39 years of age i have bagus under my eyes there always puffy looking and would like to know if there is anyway i could get rid of them or even reduce them thanks

    Hi, I recently had squint surgery done and I've noticed that my eye only looked straight on the day the surgery was done. Every time after that, especially after I've been on the computer for a while and straining my eyes, I notice my squint is still very obvious. But the doctor says she is quite happy with my alignment. Is it possible that somehow i am the only one who sees my eyes as being unaligned when I look in the mirror? I've also been taking pictures regularly and occasionally, my eyes look perfectly aligned and on other occasions,it looks horrible.Is it common for the eyes to drift back to its original position while its healing? Btw, It's almost a month since I had my surgery done.

    Hello, I'm 31 years old and about 4 years ago, while on holiday, my family noticed I had a few white spots in my armpits, I always use factor 50+ when out in the sun as my skin will burn if I don't, since then my patches have got worse, they are around my eyes, on my wrists, on the back of my hands, on my elbows, the top of my feet and on my inner thighs. I asked the doctor about them a few years ago and he said it was probably vitiligo and there is no treatment!? Just wanted reassurance that it isn't anything to worry about and not a visual symptom of anything more serious!? The marks don't really bother me too much, however I am more conscious of the ones around my eyes and on my hands. Thanks for taking the time to read this.

    I caught a virus in my eyes about eight years ago and was left with no tears at all. I have had my tear ducts sealed shut. I use hypromelose drops which help a little and was prescribed Viscotears which I find too sticky. Has there been any developments in this area with regards to a cure? My eyes produce a white substance which is very embarassing and also my eyes are very uncomfortable all the time as they are dry. Have you any ideas or should I go back again to my doctors who don't seem to be able to help. Thank you.

    I went to the hospital yesterday for a 2nd eye clinic appointment and because I had my eyes open they said it was just dry eyes. But on leaving the clinic my eyes clamped shut as I was going back to the car. I feel really depressed about this and feel fobbed off by the doctors. My question is this how can I get a diagnosis when they dont see me when I am at home and out of the house.Can I go private.

    This the crux of the matter for those sufferers who do not present with the symptoms when visiting the doctor - because most of the triggers for BEB are situations like walking with lots of people around, reading, watching TV and particularly driving. The best solution is to get a friend or family member to video you driving using their mobile phone, and take this evidence ( of your eyelids closing) with you to the medic. He should then refer you to a Neurologist who will prescribe Botox injections if suitable. My son did this for me; I showed the consultant the video and he stated me on the injections straight away. They do help. Good luck.

    It took me four years I figured it out on my on, told my reg. doctor, then I started going to eye clinic and just had my third Botox injections, I see a bit of change, but I now use two eye drop twice day that helps a lot, but it can't get in sun are my eyes shut tight, even with dark glasses, but I feel better knowing what it is and i will always have it, I'm 65 yrs old so I'm trying to be creative with hats double sunglasses. Best of luck, call all the eye doctors see if they have patients with this deseise . Hope I've been some help

    Hi I had watery eyeas and when I was 7 years old I had an operation on my eyes I was told I had blocked tearducts so I had to have thin clear tubes put in both my eyes maybe you should get you eyes checked out. My eyes are great now they don't water as much as they used to, I used to get bullied in school because it looked like I was crying but now I don't :)) x

    I can totally relate! I am 15 years old and have suffered with watering eyes for around 18 months. I use to love wearing eye liner and other eye make up and I can't wear any of it, I feel like it has ruined my life and do get quite depressed about it. My self confidence has fallen dramatically. Been to the doctors repeated times and they blame it on hayfever, yet my eyes water all year round! It is ridiculous. And definitely effects my school work, sometimes my eyes water so much I can't see or if not I'm distracted in lesson cos I'm constanstly wiping my eyes. In the winter I tend to get red marks all around my eyes and my eyes can swell up, it can be very painful. :( Wouldn't wish it on anyone.

    Over the last few weeks ive had some spots under my eyes. There really anoying me as I generally never get spots but theve not got anything inside of them. Just wanted to know what they are and what i could do to get rid of them :)

    I see the same way as you, with 2 eyes separately rather than working together! I had 4 surgeries when I was younger and still have issues. Although I'm lucky and it's not really noticeable, my eyes still cross from time to time. I've also been wearing glasses since I was a baby. I can't imagine not wearing them. You are not the only 1! 😊😊😊

    Hi It seems there is no medical cure to our disorder, but after bearing all the insults and comments I did some excercises and practices on my own and though now I can control my eyes to make them look normal in front of people its very much exhausting. Its been 4 yrs since I am doing this and though people dont remember me being a squint holding your eyes together and faking normality is too exhausting. but glad to see there are people like me, fighting similar battles of life :(.

    hi i have tiny white spots on the skin around ny eyes on eye lids and inner aspect. i haveit for at least 10 years but it is getting worse and more spots keep appearing. any idea what it is?

    I would strongly suggest a lid scrub. They sell lid scrubbing pads at places like Walmart and Walgreens. I used to and sometimes still get styes a lot. I'd get mucus in my eyes, stringy things, little zit like puss bubbles on my lids, they'd be dry or watery and itchy and red and bloodshot. What I did was, always wash my hands. In the morning after I wake up and at night before I go to sleep, I would wash my face, then my hands, and then I would splash water on my eyes, use a lid scrubber, close my eyes and scrub it, and then rinse it off and towel dab them. After a few months, my eyes felt better and they stopped hurting. To prevent infection- if your eyes burn, either microwave or semi-boil water til it's pretty warm. Soak a rag in the water, wring it out, then either lightly dab your eyes with it or lay you head back, close your eyes, and lay the cloth upon your eyes.

    I'm 35 and find my watery eyes very frustrating. Mainly get it when laughing, I do a lot of laughing! Eyes are sometimes quite saw though I'm in front of the computer all day. Thinking back to school days I do remember my eyes looking very red, when I say eyes, the start of the lids where the hair folicals start. Would love to be able to do something to prevent this happening

    Hi I am 28 and im on the pill yasmin since march 2009 and i was on a different one before that for my spots. Since the summer has started I noticed that the skin around my eyes and checks has got darker than the rest of my skin. Ive got white round patches around my eyes. It looks like ive left my sunglasses on while in the sun. Ive also got dark brown lines around my lip line. Is it because of my pill being changed? What can I do? Thanks

    hey im 16, these could be just normal spots like you get on your face, yes you do get spots down there and anywhere on your body, try to pop them, if not just leave them. your partner probably wont notice. i get them all the time, are they lumps around the lips too? look at the video and if so the woman on there has the same and ive spoke to my friends and they all say theyve got them because i was also worried about them, ive been with my boyfriend for two years and he knows ive got them and he doesnt care at all, he doesnt even notice them, try not to worry, hope ive helped x

    Hello, i would suggest getting checked out by your doctor. Just to make sure it is nothing and they may be able to prescribe something to get rid of them. Please please whatever you do, do not try to pop them!! You don't know what they are and popping them could make them worse/ make them painful/ cause bleeding/ infection or scarring. If your doctor checks them out and it is nothing to worry about then great :) and don't be embarrassed about going to your doctor about your vagina, I am 25 and trust me as you get older and go for smear tests and internal exams ect you start to not be bothered about people seeing it, lol. As for your boyfriend, well he's either not bothered or he is, that all comes down to what kind of guy he is! I really hope you've found yourself a guy who couldn't care less and loves you anyway :D

    For folks with them in the corners of the eyes like me try tapping gently round the eyebrows and under eyes and see if you have tender spots. I can be very tender in the inner edge of eyebrows and also just above nose. If so my theory re drainage is right and we must work on keeping plenty of circulation of lymph in the head and face. And tap the tension out of the area too. Gently.

    I have them on my cheeks and on large one on my left eyelid. About four years ago i went to a beautician and payed approximately £60 for all of them to be popped. This left me with a pizza face.
