How can you brighten the whites of your eyes?

How can you brighten the whites of your eyes?

Hmm... depends: On why you think they're not bright. The sclera (white part of eyeball) can be yellow, due to liver disease. The conjuntiva which covers the sclera can get infected or irritated, and appear red (conjuntivitis). Blue sclerae = bone/connective tissue disorder. Otherwise, an ophthalmologist should assess the eyes but please don't put anything in your eyes to do this on your own! ...Read more

How to make the whites of your eyeballs really white without those vessles showing?

Careful here: There normally are conjunctival vessels on the white part of the eye which are needed to bring the normal blood and nutrients to that part of the eye.

Other causes of this problem may be due to the fact that people of color may develop a non-sight threatening condition called melanosis. There is no real cure for either condition.

I would like to know if you can whiten the white of your eyes like you whiten your teeth?

I would like to know if you can whiten the white of your eyes like you whiten your teeth?

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 more

Are you supposed to pull your eye lashes every day to make sure none of them are loose enough to poke your eyes?

Are you supposed to pull your eye lashes every day to make sure none of them are loose enough to poke your eyes?

No: Eye lashes, like hair everywhere else on the body, have a particular growth cycle. When they fall out, they tend to get caught by your other lashes or drop onto your face. Occasionally, a lash may fall onto the eye, but the natural tears end up flushing it out. Pulling the lashes may cause some to be releasse prematurely, giving a thinned appearance to them. ...Read more

Can sleeping with contacts in make the whites of your eyes start to turn yellow?

Can sleeping with contacts in make the whites of your eyes start to turn yellow?

No: The whites of the eyes may appear less white if you over-wear contacts. This occurs when the lenses starve the eye of oxygen and irritate the surface skin. Microscopic blood vessels become inflamed and the eye looks less white. Natural yellowing of the eyes usually occurs with age and is not affected by contact lens wear, except as mentioned above. ...Read more

What do you do if you look at the computer so much that your vision is blurry and your eyes hurt a bit?

Every 45-60 minutes, get away from the screen and walk around, which will also help your heart health. If blurring continues, you may need to see an eye doctor. ...Read more

If you continually see spots, see an eye doctor as soon as possible. ...Read more
