Body Q&A: Morning Eye Gunk

  Why Do I wake Up Every Morning With Gunk In my Eyes?


  That crusty stuff in your eyes is actually just dried tears.

 Your tear glands are constantly watering your eyes to flush out irritants.
While you're awake. blinking acts to wipe away the steady supply of tears before they can build up.

 When your eyes are closed during the sleep cycle, the dried tears tend to accumulate at the corners of the eye.
