blocked tear ducts can cause vision problems for babies?

He gets the gooey crusty booger on right eye..so much sometimes he can barely open it..what's your experience with it..I read its fairly common.. do I have to worry about vision problems..??

Also..he's almost 2 months

It is really common and usually goes away by a year old. Just ask your doctor what you can do about it.. but probably the most you could do at this age is just clean it. My niece had this problem but it didn't go away.. It didn't cause any problems with her vision, it just made her eye look gross. :p She just had to get a minor surgery to clear the duct. It wasn't any longer than 10 minutes really.
