Eye gunk/boogers?

I am constantly having to clean Kitty's eyes. She accumilates dark gunk in the corner of her eye. I usually clean them at least three times a day; if I don't it gets all crusty. I don't mind cleaning them, they don't bother her, but is there something I can do to help prevent that? She is a long haired Munchkin with the possiblity of having some Persian blood thrown in. Every morning, I have to clean the crusty stuff out of her eye. I'll try to take and post a picture of her in the morning to let ya'll see it. Just wondering if anyone else's cat had an eye gunk problem going on.

Most likely a virus like herpes:

Thanks for the site, Dr. Jean. I read it over, and while the symptoms are similar, Kitty's eyes don't seem to bother her. The vet doesn't seem to worried, maybe I should have another one look at them.
