There are many “myths” for preventing your eyes from tearing while cutting onions:  Put a silver spoon in your mouth. Cut the onion under water.  But,  in my kitchen, the only actual method that works (when I’m not wearing my contact lenses)  is to freeze the onion for 20 minutes before cutting it!  This slows the flow of  juices.

Yes, for me, wearing my contact lenses prevents my eyes from tearing – GO FIGURE!
