All you can pretty much do is clean his eyes daily.I used to own a maltese and any long haired breed gets sleepers in their eyes.I have a lhasa apso now,and he needs his eyes cleaned daily.It's just normal for their eyes to stain.My maltese had stained eyes but I cleaned the sleepers out of them.I call it sleepers when their eyes run because I don't know what else to call it.

trust me ive tried cleaning them daily but i dont know what else to do.. if one day i just happen to not be home his eyes get worse. i even tried cutting the hair but thats just a temporary fix
