Answer: Hello dear A gummed up eye is common in newborn babies and particularly premature babies as they have very narrow tear ducts, so tears don't drain away from the eye and the fluid can get infected. Treatment for gummed up eyes: 1. Bath the affected eye with saline water to keep it clean. 2. Use damp cotton if you find gluey substance developing around the eye.
