Simple Solution: The common causes all stem from some type of irritation to the eye; dryness and allergy are probably the most common. Certain infections, too, could cause a fair amount of discharge that crusts by morning. If this is chronic, consider dryness, allergy or blepharitis (chronic inflammation of the eyelids).
