See eye doc: this can be due to several causes, but the white dirt might actually be a form of discharge that accumulates overnight. Some of the causes of this type of discharge can cause inflammation/swelling and ultimately can even threaten the quality of eye sight. I would recommend getting a firm diagnosis if possible, earlier the better.
