Both eyes are red shot swollen and crusty when I wake up in the morning.

Posted by solarte

Two days ago my right eye started itching.  I put drops in and when I woke up the next morning it was very crusty and hard to open.  Yesterday, I used eye drops again but it got worse during the day.  When I woke up this morning both of my eyes were hard to open because both were crusty.  My doctor can't get me in today.   Help.

Well, if you have it, it's an infection. If you have it TOO long, you might get blind!!!

The drops were obviously not the right thing to put in your eyes. I think, a luke warm chamomile bath, i.e. gauze pads soaked in chamomile tea (lightly squeezed out) put on closed eyes while lying down, may help, certainly not harm your condition, until you see a doctor.
