Many infants will have crusty eyes, especially in the morning, in the first 6-9 months.
This is a condition known as dacryostenosis, or a narrow tear duct. Although antibiotics are often prescribed for dacryostenosis, they don't help long term. Signs of infection include fever
, pain, bloodshot eyes, sensitivity to light, redness of the skin around the eye
or drainage that is thick yellow/green.
