Method 1: ironing eyes
Every morning or before going to bed, sit or stand upright, close your eyes, and quickly rub your palms. You will feel hot and hot after about half a minute, and then quickly press your palms on your eyes. When the heat sensation is not obvious, try again as per the method, 14 times a day.
