I just tried this last night... cleanse your entire face with witch hazel including eyelids and under your eye. I could not find castor oil eye drop bottle so I applied the castor oil directly to my eye using a Q-tip in the inner & outter corner of the eye. Then I immediately went to SLEEP (get off the phone, no facebook, twitter, linked in, etc) the messages will be there in the morning.
So far as of today(2/4/2011) I haven't pulled anything from my eye! I felt something in the bottom right eye this morning, but instead of looking for it I moved the eye lid around in a circle and within 5minutes the string was in the inner corner of my eye which I removed with a tissue. That was my only string today :-)) as of 11am 2/4/2011. We shall see...I hope this is a remedy that will work in the long run because I am tired of my Mom yelling at me to get my finger out of my eye. She says people are going to look at you CRAZY. My friends say "Oh girl what's wrong with you, what the heck is that coming out of your eye" I use to think it was normal & funny at their reaction, now I see its not. Its a serious issue that some people experience. The eye doctor perscribed me some drops & the eyelid wash like 4years ago but that NEVER worked. I PRAY this will work so I can tell others, I know my homegirl that has it also will be happy to hear!!! I hope this will work for you & everyone else that goes thru this thing.
It ultimately scares me because I know Glaucoma runs in my family & I was like wondering if these strings were how it began. I have been pulling strings for over 20years now. IT HAS TO STOP!!!!
I have had a problem with mucus fishing syndrome for 12 years and just this summer found a description of my problem. My optometrist had been diagnosing me with allergies, but no rememdies have helped. Recently I've seen two new eye docs related to upcoming cataract surgery and who both pooh-poohed me.
My new GP, though, mentioned there is a new surgery available that is a "roto-rooter" thing. I haven't been able to find any info about this on the net yet.
Sorry you're suffering and good luck.
