Thoughts on this

Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXXX

Things that can cause a crusting discharge are viral or bacterial conjunctivitis (pink eye), and something that is irritating them - such as an allergy (this time of year this can be exposure to dust), or a chemical irritant.

Have you been exposed to anything new in the past 2 weeks?

Is there any purulence (pus) or is it more the typical discharge only more of it?

Any recent colds or sinus problems? New pets?
