what is the waste in our eyes every morning?

stuff that comes out of your eyes when your sleeping and dryes on the side of your eye? eww i dont know or care. just wipe it off and forget about it lol

Dried mucus and waste residue (from foreign particles) that, along with saline that cleanses our eye, pushes the foreign particles aside to cleanse the surface of the eye.

Or, as my father taught me when I was young, just another visit from Mr. Sandman...

Eye Boogers.

it comes from an organ in your eye called the plica semilunaris that makes a sticky fluid that collects any dust or pollen that goes in your eye. All the crap that goes in your eye is surrounded by the stuff. It happens while u sleep because your eyelids don't move and its the only way for your eye to clean itself.

... the sand man puts it there to help you sleep at night

It is a colloid chemical that hardens and collects under your eyes. It is essencially the same thing as those hard boogers in your nose. Hence the name eye boogers.


Rheum is a medical term for the natural watery discharge from the eyes, commonly known as sleepydust, eye boogers, or some derivative thereof, which forms a crust on the eyelids during sleep (contrast to mucopurulent discharge). It is formed by a combination of mucus (consisting of mucin discharged from the cornea or conjunctiva), tears, leaked blood cells, dead skin cells from the eyelids, and dust.

Normally, blinking causes this substance to be washed away with tears. The absence of this function during sleep, however, results in a small amount of dry rheum forming in the corners of the eyes even among healthy individuals.

dried tears and other junk that was in eye

The organ plica semilunaris, located around the eye, secretes a sticky substance that collects dust/pollen that could be in your eye, obviously to prevent damage to the cornea. This is then transported outside of the eye and of course dries out to form the, er, 'sleep boogers'.

I don't know but it's gross watching people pick that off their eyes at school.

I think it's dry tears, eye liquid.

It is called sleep:

An organ called the plica (PLY-ka) semilunaris (sem-ee-LOO-ner-is), which is located around the eye for many years, this organ was thought to have no function. Eventually it was discovered that this organ has an important function after all.

In fact, it is the “crusty” factory. It secretes a sticky mass that collects any foreign materials such as dust or pollen. All this trash is surrounded by the sticky **** so that it does not scratch the sensitive cornea in your eye. Once the garbage is collected, the plica semilunaris “escorts” it out of the eye and that is what we find in the morning
