For healthy and beautiful eyes

Simple solutions

Instances of communicable diseases like conjunctivitis in the eye increase during this monsoon.

However, with a few easy tips, you can take good care of your eye and ensure that you stay healthy this season.

*Do not touch your eyes without washing your hands.

*Do not wipe your face with a towel/handkerchief which has cleaned your hands and body as the microbes may spread to your eyes.

*Protect your eyes in essentially windy conditions especially if you are using contact lens.

*Carry your complete contact lens kit and glasses. This will be helpful in case you are stranded for long hours in a downpour.

*Those having a high power should keep a spare pair of spectacles at all times as an added measure of safety.

*Always wash your face, hands and feet as soon as you reach home.

*Do not open your eyes deliberately to raindrops. They absorb atmospheric pollutants which could be dangerous. They also wash away the tear film, the eye’s natural protection mechanism.

*Don’t splash through water-logged streets. This could be dangerous as waterborne bacteria may cause eye infections like conjunctivitis.
