Impetigo, cold sore, oozy eyes, yellowish secretion
The short answer to your question is yes - impetigo or more specifically the bacteria which causes impetigo can get into the eye and create an eye infection or conjunctivitis. This is generally treated with antibiotic drops or ointment applied to the eyes and possibly to the skin on the face where the original rash was noted.
In the meantime you can apply warm compressions to the eyes and skin of the face. It looks like an antibiotic will be needed in this case to help promote resolution of the infection.
I hope this reply has been adequate and informative for you. I am available for your follow ups if needed.
