Our cat has dry itchy "eyelids" and keeps scratching them, how to stop this?

See the vet. Maybe get a cone collar so he can't reach his eyes to scratch until the condition clears up. Does the cat have fleas, mites, ticks?

My cat has a wormy eye discharge

It could be something as simple as an ingrown eyelash, but often times it's conjunctivitis, which is probably what the vet assumes. The vet should do a thorough eye exam (both eyes) for a root cause.
