Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by lissom: 8:18pm On Mar 14, 2007
I know some of us here might have had similar problems with their eyes.You just notice your eyes getting yellow and red as if you just finished smoking.Could be sometimes embarassing when people ask me do i smoke or am i a sickler and things like that.Looking into the mirror really makes me loose my confidence

Mine has been like that for a few years now and i have gone to see opticians but all of them just prescribe the same ineffective eyedrops.Right now i want to get an eye whitener because thats what some people have been telling me but i just want to find out from people that have whitened their eyes before or know something about eye whitners/eye whitening the kind of eye whitener i should get,where to purchase it,how much it would cost and also how long it would take before i get a visible(full) result.I am desperately in need of this and am sure your answers would be useful to other people.




Using the picture below
Do You need YPL Eyeball Whitener?

You probably do. But if you want to check for yourself, take a look at this handy chart below: Anything above level one will probably lead to social problems. People will tend to think that you are dirty. You might miss out on a few jobs. Anything above level three will probably result in major self-esteem problems. People with level five Yellow Eye Syndrome have the highest suicide rate among any other group in the United States.

eye whitening? never heard of it

instead of going to the optician you should go see your doctor.Some people have dirty eyes due to dust
but yellow undecided maybe you have kidney problem

air pollution might be a reason you have red eyes or you stay around smokers

hi,

i hope those eye whiteners aren't just a scam bt the real thing. I think u should really discuss this product with ur optician first.

And do u suffer from hayfever or maybe u just don't get enough sleep?
Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by lissom: 9:05pm On Mar 14, 2007
thanks for replying

Dont have any ailment of any sort.Am very healthy.its just due to dirts,smoke,Many hours of sitting in front of the computer and also not getting enough sleep.Have stopped using the computer and it has actually made the colour of my eyes permanently yellow,I spend less than 30minutes in front of it now and dont use it regularly also reduce the contrast,i sleep well now but it just seems to be permanent.and it has actually made the colour of my eyes permanently yellow.Really most opticians are not of any help.what they would all say is its permanent or use this and if it doesnt work don't bother yourself.My friend told me about Optrex But i still need more options.

Mind what u put into your eyes and i dont think there is such a thing as eye whiteners.

Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by spoilt(f): 10:06pm On Mar 14, 2007
the truth is that not everyone has sparkling white eyes. same with teeth. if the optician cant find anything wrong with you, then you are fine. i know everyone wants white eyes but sometimes we just cant do anything.
are you getting enough sleep? do you work long hours staring into computers, do you work in a buka with smoke? (im just kidding!) just rest your eyes as much as you can and dont let your eye color depress you ok?

n.b ive never heard of eye whitening either
Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by whiteroses(f): 10:58pm On Mar 14, 2007
yes i do use eye whitening drops just get to wilkinson and get it for £3.99. eye whitening does make a different to your entire look my eyes are crystral clear, but all these things are just vanity y'all. except from if your eyes are like noticeably yellow like urine samples or red then you can use eye whiteners.[b][/b]
@owner of thread, i like da way you think. i just thought of it people could actually be uncool or unemployed with yellow eyes
Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by PTBNaija(f): 12:25am On Mar 15, 2007
Oh wow, you guys have me freaked out? Does sitting in front of the computer make your eyes yellow? I've been using the computer for maybe several hours a day for like 6+ years, and my eyes are still white? I thought only dust can make your eyes yellow, not even lack of sleep as well?
Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by mandi: 4:15am On Mar 15, 2007
I think what you need is Visine eye drop instead of some funky "eye whitener." shocked

Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by 1forall: 11:50am On Mar 15, 2007
Hey Visine should help but also stay out of dusty, sunny and smoky environments as much as possible.
Using an LCD screen with your computer would be more appropriate for your condition.
Sunglasses can help protect your eyes from dust and sun, make sure u wear them if u ever enter okada in naija.
Avoid alcohol esp before sleeping and get enough sleep every night.
Vitamin A (Retinol) is also known to enhance eye brightness so start loving fruits pal.

All the best.

I don't know about eyewhiteners but I advice u go check ur bilirubin level 2 rule out the possibility of Jaundice and Hyperbilirubinaemia.also take ur environmental hygiene serious.
Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by gem87(f): 12:03am On Mar 16, 2007
yeah, my eyes aren't particularly red or brown or yellow but wen i went 4 my check up my optician asked if i had lived in africa, and when i said yes he said the browness was due to protein deposits resulting from dust and high sunshine levels, so wearing sunglasses is really d best u can do and fruits won't hurt either.
Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by Angelheart: 10:52am On Mar 16, 2007
This sounds to me more like Jaundice. I know my eyes are a bit brown because of the pollution and the time spent on my PC. Not yellow!

I suggest you go to the doctor to get yourself checked out. Eyes are NOT supposed to turn yellow!
Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by cynthia(f): 11:37am On Mar 16, 2007
Hey who is a dentist in the house, i want my teath to be very white. i take too much coffe and stuffs so they are kind of brown
Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by beebaybee(f): 3:08pm On Mar 16, 2007
well, i'm a sickler and i have very yellow eyes. i've been abused countless times because of that. people really think i'm a freak but i'm just like any other person. i really don't have friends and the few i claim to have are sometimes ashamed if people see me with them. there's nothing i can do really. this has really crushed my confidence into pieces, cos i can't look at people eye to eye. i've always wondered what it'd be like to have white eyes 4 just 1 minute, but, i dunno. therez nothing i can do. except i can get help from one of you lot, if datz possible. but on the other hand, i'm as normal as every one of u.

@whiteroses
seems like you really understand the deal behind the whole eye whitening thing.
but here in nigeria we cant get wilkinson only if you want to be a supplier smiley

@beebaybee
i totally understand how you feel.though my eyes are not as yellow as yours sounds but i know how white a healthy eye should look and i also understand the psychological effect it has on people.I know the way i and other people act when we see someone with yellow eyes.Its just an unconscious reaction.i have a few friends with yellow eyes and i know how i feel when i go to some places with them and also know the same way people with brighter eyes than mine act when they are with me.
There is a solution,no doubt about that so dont loose hope,especially when people tell you that you have to learn to accept the fact that you have yellow eyes.There is almost a cure to every ailment.yellow eyes is even nothing close to an ailment.The main question now is where to get a good eye whitener because i have heard about people whitening their eyes and have also seen products on the internet but what we need right now is some professional advice or some way we could get the eye whitner here in nigeria

@whiteroses
am kind of serious about the wilkinson thing

WATER WATER WATER!
thats a natural remedy. The more you drink it cleans out ur system and the excess bilirubin from your liver. Basically the more you pee the better it is.
I have a friend with sickle cell anemia, you CANNOT notice her eyes until you look very very closely because she's always drinking water (and peeing) which gets rid of it. And also this helps her have very clear skin. Its kinda annoying, cause all the guys love her. they dont know shes gt the disease.

@ Topic

I most def. can see the correlation here, like most peeps do when they get their teeth whitened as well. . .

they say it can take up to, 5-10 years off ones age. . . . .  shocked shocked

but oh well, i think we need to be comfortable in our own skin whatever be the case, afterall u only live once right,  wink

Re: Whitening Your Eye/Effect On Self Esteem by hisbaby: 12:22am On Jun 24, 2009
To the beebaybee, im a sickler also and my eyes are extremely yellow so r my brothers but i have tons of friends and have been in a few relationships. Like u i had a hard time looking people in the eyes and have had very embarrassing situations where people have loudly and inappropriately asked if i smoked, i even had a teacher call a parent teacher meeting to discus my "drug problem". But slowly and painfully I learned that if I had enough confidents that not only in my beauty but in my intelligence that no one could ever make me feel like I am less than they r. On the other hand i have had guys tell me that they thought my eyes were beautiful and exotic (including my bf of 2years), i have been told my many people that they did not even notice the color of my eyes, over years i have learned to brush off the stairs and the whispers and allow my personality do all the work for me,
[b][/b][color=#770077][/color]My advise to u is to be CONFEDENT!!!!, the ppl perceive you by the way you portray yourself, if u seem timid and easily intimidated u will b an easy target if u seem insecure and unconfident ppl will treat u like the ugly duckling always look your best and act like “ur poo dnt stink” lol but if your self esteem is extremely low i suggest wear non prescription eye glasses to distract from your eyes.

Yeah,I have heard of the eye whiteners b4. Havent seen anyone before though. There was a time when I experience acute eye-itch. This resulted in my eyes losing its whiteness. Not that its very red now,but its far from the white it should be. So I also need them eye-whiteners.

NB: They fact that my eyes arent completely white doesnt affect my self-esteem from any angle of view

The Boxer Wachler Vision Institute has created the only permanent procedure for eye whitening known as I-Brite. The delicate procedure involves removing the thin membrane that holds the unsightly red veins and yellow or brown material. A crystal clear membrane (without red blood vessels, yellow or brown spots) grows back in its place. The procedure is outpatient, painless and performed in about 15 minutes.

Hope This Helps!
