Either cut the onion under running water or just run cold water over the onion for a few seconds before cutting it either method works fine. The point it that with the water on the onion it cant mist juice when sliced which once in the air ends up in your eyes.

I`ve tried chewing gum while cutting onions, but it barely helped. Then again, I am a little bitch.

Goggles keep the pestering gas out of your eyes. You`ll look ridiculous but @#$* it if you cry.

soak the onion in an ice bath for 10-15 minutes before cutting

Saltine Crackers, chew a few first then have one in you mouth while you cut. That`s always worked for me.

sharp knife and good air circulation is the best way to help tearing eyes while cutting onions

When I was a kid, nothing would work. I couldn`t be in the same room as someone chopping onions, and I couldn`t go inside sandwich shops, because my eyes would burn so bad, I couldn`t open them.

I avoided it for years, and then when I was a teenager, I just realized it barely hurt me anymore. I was wearing glasses by then. Maybe that has something to do with it.

Dunno why you horse-people chew. Just keep your mouth closed and you won`t cry. I can`t explain the science, but for some reason I only tear up if I`m being a mouth-breather.

Cut them in a bowl of water.

Freshly cut onions give off a substance that reacts with the moisture on your eyeballs to form a slightly acidic substance. Your eyes react to that by releasing more fluid to wash it off and probably also triggering blinking to increase the efficiency of the washing.

Cut them in a bowl of water and the stuff given off by the onions reacts with the water in the bowl, not in your eye. Your skin is far less delicate than your eyeballs and there`s a lot more water in the bowl than on your eyeballs, so it has no effect.

I`ve heard breathing through your mouth works too, but people may not want to eat food prepared by a creepy mouth breather
