This white puss has been coming from my left eye this past week and I fear it may be something serious. Every morning when I wake I have to stumble to the bathroom to wash my eyes out because they have been dried shut and then for every few hours of the day I have to keep it closed because air seems to irritate it. So far there is no swelling that I can see but it is rather red. I don't have insurance so I can't see a doctor about it. Is there anything I can do at home?

Sounds just like pink eye to me! And you'll need and antibiotic for it maybe you can go ask a pharmisist if there is any over the counter thing that might help it!!

The condition of a white puss being excreted by the eye and drying up inside the eye whilst it is closed causing the eye to 'dry shut', is actually as the result of a blocked tear duct. There a several causes for blocked tear ducts including severe sinus and also conjunctivitis. A lot of people confuse this condition with conjunctivitis when in actual fact conjunctivitis is just a reddening of the conjunctivi (outer most area of eye due to a viral infection). Hope this response helps. Cheers.

Puss in eyes
Hello I wanted to reply to all above about the eye condition with puss in eye. I have both eyes swollen with puss coming out and both eyes sealed shut with dried crust/sand. I went to my local hospital and they gave me a bottle of Sulfacetamide Sodium Ophthalmic Solution drops. I was told to put two drops in each eye every three hours and yes,they are starting to feel better but they still sting and dry shut but no puss so they must be healing. I was also giving an antiboitic ampacillin to take three times a day. Thought this might help others that are suffering and in pain with this problem. I pray that you go and get help too!
