Your eyes reflect your nutritional state.  Bulimia is a difficult condition, but it can be treated with some success via cognitive behavior therapy and Maudsley Family Therapy ("Family Based Treatment"), for example.  The thing is that bulimics have to want treatment enough to seek it themselves.  No one else can do it for them.

In life, everything we do has consequences.  Dry, red eyes are a small part of bulimia.  There's lots more.
