Can you advice what has to be done. is this an infection or just some due to dust . She has white substance that we get in the morning when we wake up in the left eyes which we are not able to remove even with water.

Brief Answer:
It is infection.

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ratheesh,

From your description it looks like conjunctivitis(infection). Ask her to wash her eyes frequently with water. She can also start applying Moxifloxacin (Milflox) eye drops 4 times per day in the affected eye. If it gets worse please consult a nearby eye doctor.

Best regards,
Dr.Mihir Shah
