It is quite a common problem in newborns. The reason why sticky eyes happens is due to slow development of the tear ducts in the infants. Tear ducts are tubes where tears flow away from the eyes. Sticky eyes on their own don't pose any threat to the child. However, you need to wipe out the stickiness from the eyes or eye in this case so to ensure that your baby's eyeball is white and in good health. Like I said the condition is not serious and generally clears up as the baby grows up. However, do remember that watery eyes may return if the baby has cold.
