Bright, sparkling eyes can communicate a lot about a person. When your iris (the colored part of your eye) is in high contrast with the white part of your eye (the sclera), your eyes tend to have more sparkle and often convey a sense of excitement, vitality, and health.
White and bright eyes are a sign of great health as well as desirable.
As we age our eyes change too, and not just regarding how they perform but also how they look to others.
While burst blood vessels are relatively common, yellowing, dullness and discolouration are even more so.
Here are 7 easy, no-fuss ways to help keep your eyes looking as bright and healthy as possible.
1. Eat more Fruits and vegetables
Eating green, leafy foods like spinach and kale also have a great effect on you the eye. These fruits and vegetables will also help to detoxify your liver. A healthy liver will help keep the whites of your eyes bright and white.
2. Put green tea bags on your eyelids
Whether black tea or green tea, tea bags are the best for relaxing and rejuvenating eyes for a youthful healthier look.
If your eyes are puffy, swollen, or irritated, placing green tea bags on your eyelids may help reduce swelling and ease discomfort.
3. Use cucumbers
Cucumbers are known to have a high water content making them the best alternative for brightening you eyes.
Cucumber juice contains powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, as well as vitamin C, which can soothe tired skin and eyes.
4. Get enough sleep

5.Drink plenty of water
Staying hydrated is an important part of your overall health, but it’s particularly important for your eyes and skin.
Enough water ensure your body has enough moisture to keep your eyes lubricated and hydrated.
6. Use a cold compress
If your eyes feel puffy or swollen, try using a cold compress.
Putting anything cold in contact with the eye helps reduce puffiness, but it can also help whiten your eyes as well. Soak a washcloth in ice water or wrap it around ice cubes.
7. Avoid dry air
Air at high altitudes, in desert climates, and in airplanes can be especially dry. Wind and smoke can also dry out your eyes, as can hair dryers and car heaters that blow directly into your eyes.
When your eyes don’t have enough moisture, they can become irritated, scratchy, and red.
