Q.

Eye problem

2 days ago, my 20 month old daughter started getting lots of sleep coming out of her eyes and I have to wipe out a lot of it every 2 hours. Her eyes also went from bright white to a dull gray color and the veins are also visible. I noticed yesterday that she started to squint her eyes as if she' s trying to see properly. She' ll be seeing a doctor soon but what can I do in the mean time and what could the problem be?

Your little girl has developed an eye infection. You should ask your pharmacist for treatment for her eyes. It is best to use Chloramphenicol eye drops or ointment.
