Mucus fishing syndrome is characterized by the continuous action of “fishing” or pulling strands of mucus that have accumulated in the lower eyelids. This condition typically begins with eye irritation that leads to excessive mucus production. Due to increased levels of discomfort and irritation in the eye or eyes, sufferers often attempt to remove excess mucus with their fingers or with tissue paper. However, this inadvertently leads to more irritation causing the production of more mucus.
