I just had to share this...I couldn't stand the blood showing in my eye, after doing some research my every morning process is to get two black tea bags, put them in a cup, add boiling water, take them out of the water, dump the tea in the cup, keeping as much moisture in the bags as possible, they are hot so you can't put them in your eye. You have to put the bags in the freezer for a few minutes.
When they are cold, I squeeze some of the liquid out and drop into each eye, (very little) be careful...then put the bags on my eyes (one on each) under a bag of frozen peas for as long as I can stand it at least 15 mins. This is a time caffeine really works for you as a diuretic it reduces those swollen veins.
Then whip up an egg white and put on any bags they may have formed over night from peripheral edema, the egg white will dry and tighten the skin in the process. For best effects you can leave some on.
