My mother is facing water discharge from her eyes. With water, there is also some thick semi-liquid discharge from sides. These symptoms are also accompanied by some heaviness in the eyes. I believe this is contagious as one another family member of mine is facing the same issues.

Your mother is most probably suffering from infective conjunctivitis. Probably bacterial. The treatment is antibiotic eye drops. You should consult an Ophthalmologist for the same. Most important is that it should not spread to others. It spreads from person to person by droplets. thus everyone in your family should avoid using the same clothes, etc., like your mother. Also, ask her not to hold any babies and touch others hands. If done so, then wash immediately with soap. With treatment, it should resolve in a week. Please follow-up with any further queries.
