Yes. You can use a few different things. Some people swear breast milk works really well to clear it. I've not tried that. I used cotton wall and eye wash like a very mild saline. Always wipe from the inside to the outer eye. Never reuse cotton wool as it can spread between the eyes. Or you can use a product called Little Wipes (I think). Sme company makes them as makes Fess. You get it from the chemist.
