What might cause early morning eye problems?

Eye drops: The most common early morning eye problem is due to overnight dryness. I am assuming that your vision clears quickly and you are comfortable most of the day and evening.

Allergies, which can cause blinking, eye rubbing, itchy or watery eyes, or reddish eyes can be treated.
