Quick eye question-third membrane showing both sides

    DB81E41E-65C5-4254-BE8A-F7820F4588EF.jpeg Hi all. Quick question. My 5 year old male just woke up from his nap and both third eyelids are covering most of both eyes.

    Yesterday, he had big clear mucous discharge in both eyes. He seems to get these clear globs every spring for a few weeks from allergies (he went to a vet for it the first time for the diagnosis of allergic conjunctivitis). I just pull them off a few times a day and all is good usually.

    From what I read, the differential diagnosis includes allergic conjunctivitis. He has never had the third membrane affected with his usual spring allergies though.

    The conjunctiva are not red nor swollen. I am ruling out dehydration as a cause because he has access to water all the time and was only out in the heat for about 15 mins a few times today.

    Anyone have any other thoughts? It is not a particularly high allergen time in NJ now 6/10) so not sure if this is his usual diagnosis.

    I will be taking him to the vet if it persists tomorrow so no worries there.

    I just got back from swimming a few hours later. His third membranes are back to normal now. His eyes just look like his spring allergy eyes now. Thanks for reading.

    Glad everything worked out.
    They get us so stressed about these sort of things don’t they?

    Yes! I was so creeped out by the eyelids...I don’t know how he could see.

    Kinda like us....waking from a sleep and have gunk in our eyes. I wonder if having an extra membrane in there kinda makes it worse a little. So many areas the gunk can get stuck in and irritate.
