In my case, I will get puffy eyes from too much sugar or too close to bedtime. Sugar inflames the skin and the eyes and causes puffiness. When I reduce my sugar intake, I get smoother looking eyes.

[YEA] I went to an optician 4 times as I felt as if I had broken glass in my eyes. He said there was nothing wrong. On my fith visit, he said 'oh yes, you've got blocked eye glands!! He gave me some ointment to keep my eyes lubricated, which after 1 use, I decided not to use anymore. So what I did was use a clean separate cotton wool pad on each eye, and washed them gently in warm distilled water, then used a separate clean 1 to dry eye. I did this 4 times a day. With in 3 days after weeks of hell!!, they were fine!! I now do this EVERY TIME I have any eye problems, and it ALWAYS WORKS. Hope this helps some 1 else. LOVE Andrea C xxxxxxxxReplied by Wayout

I have been fighting infections in one of my eyes for a year now. Eye Doc gave me drops and ointment which I now found out (a year later) are steroids. I kept breaking blood vessels in the eye and the pressure of the eye was not normal. Went to new eye doc who said stop taking the meds, wash my eye lids with baby shampoo and water or get those Opti washes from the drug store. In 3 days what an improvement! However, our eyelids have small glands and when I use eye make up(eyeliner or mascara) my eyes would itch more. Doc said I was stopping up the glands and to be sure to wash the eyelids every day if not more. Does anyone know of eye make up which is good for not clogging up your eyelids? I have tried hypo-allergenic brands which do not work. I just purchased an herbal eye liner called Palladio from the local beauty supply store. Hope it works. Any suggestions regarding eye make up.Replied by Francisca

I did three things continuously and it was resolved in 4 days. First, I drank 2 teaspoons of Apple Cider Vinegar with 1 teaspoon honey with 8 oz glass of water three times a day. I also used castor oil compress with heat on my eye three times a day. I applied castor oil onto a flat cotton pad, secured it on my eye with those press and seal wraps ( in lieu of saran wrap), and got a really hot rag and placed it on top of wrap for at least 10 minutes each time. That helped the thing come to a head. I also bought a boric acid eye wash solution at the store and cleaned my eye out four times a day. On the third day, the nasty thing in my eye discharged a bunch of yellowy white stuff while I was cooking. I continued with my regimen until it was completely healed.Posted by Estong (Imus, Cavite, Philippines) on 12/26/2011

EC: Do you mean pterygium?

My husband has been suffering from pterygiums in both eyes (benign wing like growths). We have been advised to have them removed since one of them is beginning to cross the pupil area. Does anyone have experience in treating these without surgery?Replied by Rebecca
