In brief: Unrelated to crusts

Parinaud's syndrome is a number of symptoms associated with damage to a particular brain region that controls eye movements.
These primarily include difficulty looking upward, a constant downward gaze, inability to coordinate eyes, and pupil malfunction.Parinaud's is caused by brain injury; increased pressure inside the head, stroke, or tumor. All are unrelated to conditions of the eye itself.

In brief: See your doctor

Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome is a condition that includes swollen lymph nodes as well as conjunctivitis in one eye.
It is associated with certain infections and can sometimes be transmitted by contact with animals ("cat-scratch disease"). It can be best diagnosed and treated by an eye doctor.
