Q. Eyes are matted shut every day. I clean them and it still returns. What can I do to clear them up?

A. It sounds like it could be an infection. You need to see a vet for appropriate antibiotic eye drops. Eye problems shouldn't be left too long without treatment as some conditions can cause irreversible damage.
