The best solution aside from the cutting tool is to wear tight-fitting swim goggles. They will keep any fumes away from your eyes. You can also place a small fan to your left or right and have it blow across the cutting board to keep the fumes away from your eyes.

I'm sorry, but what exactly is an onion slicer? Is this a particular type of kitchen gadget? It sounds interesting.

I have a lot of trouble with my eyes watering around onions too. And, no matter how much I wash my hands afterwards, if I handle an onion too much, I can have a lot of trouble taking my contacts out. Ouch, if you know what I mean.

So, I always use my food processor to slice or chop onions.

But, thanks, Everyone for all the tips above. I'll try some of those...
