How To Make The Whites Of My Eyes Whiter
Why would you?: If you have an occasional redness you can use over the counter vasoconstrictors with or without antihistamine. But maximum use is once or twice a day. Using them more often causes a rebound vasculitis, a redness that is hard to treat. If you have chronic red eyes you should see an ophthalmologist for proper diagnosis. ...Read more
I have a yellow/beige ring around my pupil and in my eye. Are there any eye drops that i can take to make the whites of my eyes whiter instead of them being beige?

No red out drops: Do not use red out drops on a regular basis--these can actually make the redness much worse. I recommend wearing sunglasses with maximum uv protection, make sure you are getting enough sleep, avoid dusty/smoky environments, and use an artificial tear drop up to 4x per day.

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
Why are the 'whites' of my eyes not so white?

Gilbert's?: Whites are not always pure white. If they seem to be a little more yellow from time to time it may be that you have gilbert's syndrome - a common abnormality in which the breakdown products of your red blood cells are retained in your bloodstream and give your eyes a little yellow. This can be more pronounced during times of physiologic stress. ...Read more
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
