How To Make The Whites Of Eyes Whiter
Hmm... depends: On why you think they're not bright. The sclera (white part of eyeball) can be yellow, due to liver disease.

Due to gilbert's syndrome the white parts of my eyes are yellowish :( how can I make them whiter?
May come and go: Gilbert's syndrome is a benign condition that affects the way your liver breaks down the hemoglobin from your red blood cells.
