A Clear Membrane Appears In The Outer Corner Of The Eye?
Good afternoon, my eyes in the outer corner of the eye have a thin clear membrane, not cloudy but like watery, also like clear eye discharge. I try to touch it with tissue (clean hands) like mucous membranes and I am afraid that if it is removed or removed it can cause eye irritation or even injury, according to the doctor, why and what is the solution?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of clear membranes in the outer corners of the eye can occur due to the following conditions:
Pinguecula (a pimple-like lesion in the eye that appears in the conjunctiva, occurring associated with excessive sun exposure)
Pseudopterigium (growth of membranes in the eye that can be caused by burns, chemical exposure, mechanical trauma, or marginal corneal disease)
Corpus alienum (inserting a foreign body into the eye)
Conjunctivitis (inflammation of the conjunctiva)
Malignancy (eg carcinoma in situ, flat cell carcinoma), and so on
If the eye lining has appeared for a long time (more than 2 weeks), enlarges rapidly in size, or is often inflamed, causing red eyes, feel lumpy, runny, sore, and more sensitive to light, you should consult yourself directly to the doctor or ophthalmologist. True, you should not carelessly pull or remove the membranes in your eyes to prevent injuries, irritations, or secondary infections that are more difficult to treat.
More precisely, you do the following tips first:
Use protective goggles so that the eyes do not enter foreign objects or are exposed to excessive sunlight
Don't rub your eyes excessively, or hold your eyes with dirty hands
If the eyes feel uncomfortable, first drops artificial tears
Hope this helps ...
