What Are Crusty Eyes?
People with crusty eyes sometimes describe it as being like having your eyes glued shut in the morning. There is typically a build-up on the eye lid that is a yellowish, sticky, crusty substance. This crusty eye lid condition can be temporary. When it is persistent, you have a chronic condition that requires medical intervention.
What Causes Crusty Eyes?
Causes of crusty eyes and dry eye discharge include conjunctivitis (pink eyes), bacterial or viral infections, ocular herpes, allergies, stye – also called a hordeolum or chronic dry eye conditions – including blepharitis and meibomian gland dysfunction.
Depending on what is causing the eye discharge, additional symptoms may include:
- Blurred vision
- Burning sensation
- Itchy sensation
- Dry eyes
- Sore eyes
- Watery eyes
- Red crusty eyes
- Photophobia (sensitivity to light) – a typical dry eye syndrome.
- Blurry vision
- Spread of infection – especially bacterial or viral infections
- Cornea damage can be caused by crusty eyelids and chronic dry eyes if the cornea gets scratched
- Loss of vision
- Dry, itchy eyes – due to allergies
- Inability to open eyelids in the morning
- Red, bloodshot eyes
Relief for Chronic Crusty Eyes
