Are OTC eye drops safe for infants?

This morning my 6 month old woke up with a very red eye and a lot of goop around it that he could hardly open it. Are OTC eye drops safe for him?

    You baby may get an eye infection. If you are still breast feeding put a little breast milk into her eyes before you can take her to an doctor. It contains things good for healing minor infections. Don't get her the OTC eye drops and you may make it worse. Take her to the pediatrician and see what they recommend.
