Yes, that does exist! And it includes; first shut the eyes and squeeze them tightly. Then open them quickly, as wide as possible. Repeat until the eyes begin to water. This will help your eyes look and feel fresh and bright. You can also move a pen or pencil horizontally and vertically in front of your eyes, keeping your eyes focused on the tip of the pen. Do this exercise for 10 to 15 minutes daily. Another option is to rub the palms of your hands together until they become warm, then place them over your closed eyelids for a few minutes.
Both green and black tea bags are known to reduce eye strain and restore the natural glow and brightness to the eyes. The antioxidant properties in tea bags help reduce swelling around the eyes.

Place the chilled teabags over closed eyes and let them sit for 5 minutes.
