    Your eyes may be so dry. That is why you feel the eyes crust when you sleep. You need to use some eyes drops to release the eyes. At the same time, you should eat more food with vitamin C to moisture the eyes. You should not sit in front of the computers for a long time which will make your dry eyes get serious. You'd better have the good rest for the eyes.
