Obagi's Neotensil : There is a new "fix" on the market from Obagi called Neotensil. It is a temporary treatment that improves the appearance of bags, wrinkles and dark circles under the eyes. Also being called "spanx" for under the eyes. A good alternative to cosmetic surgery, however, a bit pricey, but you can use it daily or just for special occasions. Worth a look, better than most stuff out there!

Jaundice?: Yellow eyes can be due to abnormal liver function. If you do have true jaundice, you need to see your doctor right away. Otherwise, OTC eyedrops such as visine will cause the blood vessels to constrict and take away redness and make the eyes whiter. However, I do not recommend these drops because your eyes can become dependent on them and develop rebound redness. Best to have an eye exam.

Eye exam: have an ophthalmologist do a complete eye exam. Sometimes surgery can be done to straighten out the eyes but you need to have an exam.
