Hello henolivares. Perhaps a change in the cleansing solution. That might be the cause. Or your eye doctor could possibly determine the reason for the buildup. Regards pledge
See your eye Dr to check the fit of your lenses and like Pledge says, a change in cleaning solutions may help but if your lenses are not fitting right they can cause all kinds of problems. The mucus may be in response to the lenses rubbing the cornea. I get bad protein build up on mine and I have a special cleaning solution with hydrogen peroxide that works great! makes my lenses feel like new!
