What Are Eye Boogers?

Human eyes have a tear film that covers them and helps clear away the dust that would otherwise impede your vision. The video explains what happens when the eyelid doesn't open and close enough to clear away the dust, like when you are sleeping. It details what makes up the gound and times when people produce more gound.
