    Every morning, off-white mucous-y stuff collects in the inner corners
    of my eyes, particularly when I instill lubricating drops or saline.

    Back from trip to Colorado (eyes were thoroughly brutalized) last
    night. As has been my practice, I put Genteal lube in my eyes last
    night to help ameliorate the dessicating effect of the airplane ride.

    This morning, the mucous-y stuff was green-to-yellow.

    Research Center to evaluate me for immune dysfunction subsequent to
    high-dose Neurontin used to control the eye pain in April.

    (furuncles) and fungi (fungal sinusitis). Systemic antifungals and
    nasal BactroBan prescribed by CO doctors.

    Given my extensive ocular history and an indication of immune
    dysfunction (verified by the doctors; awaiting quantification, if
    possible), what would you recommend regarding this latest, if

    to see yet another doctor (or speak to one over the phone) for some
    topical antibiotics.
