Examination
On examination, the pupils were round and reactive to light, the globes were soft by palpation, and extraocular movements were full in both eyes. On pen-light examination, both upper and lower eyelids appeared mildly erythematous with minimal swelling, and a large amount of woody-appearing, thick, mucoid discharge overlying all conjunctival surfaces was present (Figure 1). The underlying conjunctiva appeared white and quiet, and the corneas appeared clear. Dilated fundus examination revealed a cup-to-disc ratio of 0.2 in both eyes. Both discs were pink with sharp edges. The maculae, vessels, and retinal periphery were also normal bilaterally.
