eye discharge won't go away

I have been having this issue with my eyes since January. First my eyes got swollen and I have been having discharge coming out of my eyes. It happens all day every single day. I have been to my doctor who sent me to an eye specialist. I get the same answer bacterial conjunctivitis. I even went and got an std check because online it said an std could be causing it. Everything came back fine(which is a good thing by the way) Inside my bottom eye lid would be a string of white mucus. The discharge would sometimes be yellow but mostly white. It had also made my vision blurry. I do take allergy meds. I went to the allergist and he told me my allergies are not causing this. It's been almost 7 months with this embarrassing eye discharge. All I want is for it to be gone. I wear glasses so contacts aren't the problem. Can someone help me?

The most common problem would be chronic dry eyes, excess mucous and if you are digging around trying to get rid of it "Mucous fishing syndrome"  Use the search feature and archives lot written about the problem here.

is there anything that could be done about it? it's causing me to lose eye lashes because it gets stuck in my eye lashes and most times get hard and sometimes its wet
Not something that can be treated on internet. I suggest you get a second opinion from an Eye MD ophthalmologist that specializes in cornea and external disease problems.
