Hi there


In researching your question, no scabies are not going to be in your eyes.  Here is a web site devoted to scabies facts and they say:  "Normal scabies infestations are not known to go to the head. They are usually located from the neck down."


So whatever it is you are feeling in your eyes is probably not scabies.  I would also strongly recommend not using eye drops which are years old. 


Please do see your doctor if you have any more concerns or worries. 


Thank you for your question.
