What can I do to get the whites of my eyes brighter?

Question

What can I do to get the whites of my eyes brighter? Mine are never bright white, they are either off-white or a bit reddish (which I think is from sitting at the computer). Do you have any suggestions?

Answer

It is possible to get the whites of your eyes brighter, but you will have to consider several factors. The reddishness could very well be from eye strain caused by working on the computer. Make sure you rest your eyes often enough by taking frequent breaks from staring at the screen. Air-conditioned environments also makes the air very dry and can cause dry, red eyes. If you spend a lot of time in an air-conditioned environment you should either get a humidifier to put moisture in the air, or use lubricating eye drops. Make sure that you are getting sufficient sleep. Tiredness from insufficient sleep will also make your eyes reddish and dull. If your eyes are off-white to yellow you should pay attention to your liver. It may be a sign of a toxic, sluggish liver burdened by toxins. Do a good liver detox and minimize exposure to liver toxins such as alcohol, caffeine, sugar and saturated fat from animal origin.

I got chili in my eyes, help!

Question

Last night I cut chillis and accidently rubbed my eye afterwards. I was in agony and didn’t know what to do. I tried rinsing with water but eventually my friend poured milk into it to act as an alkaliser. This soothed it a bit but then the only thing that soothed it was when I held an ice block on it. Today it is better but tender. Was there a better way of treating it?
