He (the Imam) said, ‘Do you want something unique?’ He (the Imam) then said to me, ‘When you wash your hands after eating food, wipe your eye brows and say three times, “All praise belongs to Allah, the Benefactor, the Graceful, the Munificent, the Pre-eminent.’” He (the narrator) has said, ‘I followed the instruction and thereafter my eyes did not experience any pain and ache, all praise belongs to Allah, Cherisher of the worlds.’”
