Thank you ladies. I was using a boric acid eyewash for several weeks with no results. I took a gander at some info today about what they might do at the eye doc and they said that when it's seemingly stubborn they will use an Iodine wash in the eye/s to help it along...so given that I think it is worth a shot for a few days. I put one drop in about two quarts of distilled water and rinsed my eyes with it, seemed to work so far, it washed out some gunk and several times today have been draining. They do look much better but sore nonetheless. I have an appt on fri with the eye doc in case this does not resolve itself. I wish I knew what and why they have been so stubborn, unless it's someone close to me that has something they keep passing to me that I am not aware of. However, my husband's eyes look like two piss holes in a saggy snowbank and I keep telling him to get them looked at because they aren't normal and he refuses, says they are sore and swollen because he is playing a video game too many hours...I'm getting rather frustrated as to the source of this and it's refusal to clear up permanently. After I get it cleared up, again, and it comes back, i'll take drastic measures!
