Your baby almost certainly has blocked tear ducts. Make up a very dilute salt solution to wipe clean both of her eyes with at least twice a day. Use a quarter teaspoon salt in a cup of boiled and cooled water. Wipe her eyes with a cotton wool swab from her nose side outwards. It is very important to gently massage the corner of her eyes at the nose side using your small finger. Gently rub this area twice daily using your finger. If she does not improve after 10 days she should be seen by an ophthalmologist [not optician]. Ask your paediatrician or doctor to recommend an ophthalmologist.
