Other causes are from a pingueculum or ptyerygium. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How white does your white part of eye have to be? I heard you can determine your overall health by looking at the white portion.
To each his own: The whiteness of eyes can be subjective, similar to the whiteness of teeth. The importance lies more in the change from your baseline level of white. Over time, the whites of most people's eyes change, and they can also look more ore less white in different lighting or even when wearing different clothes.

Avoid red eye drops: Whites of eyes discolor usually from the blood vessels enlarging, making the eyes bloodshot. An exception is yellowing (jaundice) from liver disease. Red eyes are often caused by dryness or allergies. Lubricating or allergy drops (eg ketotifen) can be a big help. Drops that 'get the red out' are highly affective cosmetically but can be very addictive - the eyes get more red if you try to stop. ...Read more

See DR immediately: Yellow eyes are not normal, and nothing you can do topically will help change the color back to white without seeing your eye doctor immediately.

That's the fastest way of getting the yellow out of your eyes. ...Read more
If you were to open your eyes underwater, could the water damage surface or cornea? How do you get conjunctiva on the sclwra?
Several reasons: "spots" in front of the eyes can be caused by floaters (small bits of gel floating in the back of the eye), a temporary decrease in the amount of blood reaching the eyes, and stimulation of the retina (by rubbing the eyes or even a retinal tear or detachment). If you continually see spots, see an eye doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more
Unfortunately no: The white of the eye is actually made up of 3 layers: the sclera (the hard surface), which is covered by a tissue layer called tenon's capsule, and a layer of skin that lies on top of the tenon's called conjunctiva. Any and all of these layers can discolor with time due to increased pigmentation, blood vessel growth or fat accumulation. There is no treatment to reverse this natural change. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How to touch the color part of your eye without blinking? Is that bad to do if you're starting on contact lenses?
Why do the whites of my eyes stick to tissue? I'll do it to get makeup off if it gets in my eye and the white will stick to the tissue and pull! ?!?!?
Use artificial tears: The whites of the eyes (the sclera) is covered by a clear tissues called the conjunctiva that is moist to keep the eyes lubricated. When contacted by something dry, like a tissue, the conjunctiva will adhere gently and appear to be "sticking". It is a normal procews, but you do want to try minimizing that contact, as it can cause irritation over time. Try artificial tears to rinse instead. ...Read more
Can you tell me when an eyelash inside your eye goes all the way up your eye and lost. Where does it go?
Falls outside: Eyelashes are continuously produced, mature and fall out. The eye is quite effective at dealing with this and lashes that fall into the eye soften with the moisture and are washout. This happens all of the time. The lash will fall onto your skin, or the ground. They are in fact tiny and rarely noticed during this cycle. ...Read more
