My son has eye discharge, so sticky cannot open his eyes?

Hi doctor, my 6 yr old son always has sleep in his eyes in the morning. Sometimes it is too sticky that he cannot open his eyes. He is a swimmer and swims twice a week. He also watches you tube in his phone most of the time. He sleeps 8pm and wakes up 530am for school. This doesnt come with fever and after bathing it goes away.

hi
it seems that the swimming pool water is infecting his eyes causing conjunctivitis. he should avoid swimming if possible. put eye drops so that the eye inflammation will reduce. he should wash his eye with clean water frequently
thanks

HI
HE MAY HAVE AN ALLERGY TO SOMETHING,MAY BE THE WATER IN THE SWIMMING POOL.
WHENEVER HE IS BACK FROM SWIMMING, WASH HIS EYES WITH CLEAN WATER.. TRY CHANGING THE SOAP HE USES

Pool chlorine may cause viral conjunctivitis which may take a week or two to subside by its own viral course…
Keep eye clean and use under water glasses for your son..
If he got a pink eye you must see a doctor at once…

hello there
it may be due to a low grade conjunctival infection. wash his eyes regularly and wait for 5 days. if there is no improvement,then consult a opththalmic surgeon.
u can start on local eye drops if the stickiness is more
