Summer Eye Care Tips
Due to their sensitivity, eyes can develop several disorders from prolonged exposure to the sun, dust, and pollution. Here are some eye care tips:
Wear Larger Sunglasses with 100 per cent UV Protection: Invest in sunglasses that provide full protection against harmful UV rays. Wraparound frames are the best as they give protection even from the sides.
Use Wide Brimmed Hat: In addition to sunglasses, a wide-brimmed hat will give you additional protection from the sun.
Stay Hydrated: Drink at least two liters of water to prevent your skin and eyes from getting dehydrated.
Apply Sunscreen Carefully: While applying sunscreen, ensure that it does not get into your eyes as it can cause discomfort.
Avoid Mid-Day Sun: The sun is at its strongest between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and it’s best to stay indoors during these hours. If you must go out, don’t forget to wear sunglasses and a hat.
Use Lubricating Eye Drops: The increased use of air conditioning can cause dryness in your eyes. Use preservative-free eye drops to give comfort to your eyes. (IANS)
