Actually you should first get your dryness evaluated and then use some lubricating drops according to the severity. There are some long acting lubricating drops that can used for the problem. Sticky eyes sometimes are temporary such as when you wake up in the morning. If it is persistent, the medical attention should be considered. There are many different reasons why your eye produces discharge. Most causes are harmless, but some can be the result of more serious condition. The most common occurrence is waking up with discharge in the corners of your eyes. This discharge is a sign that some form of bacteria, either from make-up or extra oily skin, has tried to make its way into your eye while you were sleeping. A bacterial infection can lead to a more serious condition like blepharitis, which is an inflammation at the base of your eyelashes. People who are sick with cold or flu tend to have more eye discharge. So, it is better to get it examined first and get the appropriate treatment accordingly. Some scientists have come to believe that the tendency (or predisposition) for someone to develop the serotonin imbalance that causes OCD can be inherited through the person's genes. Having the genetic tendency for OCD doesn't mean people will develop OCD, but it means there is a stronger chance they might. For this you should get it tested.
