Red eyes in young people are often due to your lifestyle habits, too much outdoor exposure, exposure to dust dirt or winds, poor rest, allergies. You wont be able to change the color of the white from a yellow to a whiter white. You can use something like Zaditor OTC if you have itching and redness, as itching is a symptom of allergies. You can use things like Naphcon - A to take away redness for times you really need a white eye but it is only temporary. To make them less red all the time, you can use lubricants like Refresh Celluvisc. In the absence of medical conditions that cause yellowing of the white, you cant really do anythjing to change the color. Lastly reducing UV exposure with sunglasses can help reduce further yellowing / redness, Regards XXXXX XXXXX
