How old is he? Does he have any other symptoms ? cough, fever, lethargic? if he is active eating, drinking, peeing, pooping..all the fun stuff..I would gently wash his eye with a rag and warm water...keep a watch on it and see how it does..he may have got something in it such as hay...

We just got him on the 7th and he's 10 weeks old. He's eating, popping, acting normal. He is still trying to adjust to his new home. I just got to love on him yesterday. Thanks happybleats!!!!

it may be an adjustment to your hay. i know when we get a new batch of hay sometimes they get eye discharge. it could also be dusty hay. i would just clean his eyes with a baby wipe and if there are no other symptoms try some benadryl.
