Avoid Eye Infections – Wash your hands!
We have seen a complete Pandemic with this slogan being applied everywhere we go. Keeping our hands clean is one of the best ways to prevent eye infections and a pandemic. Although taken for granted, our hands are the most used part of our body. So, they come in contact with various items throughout the day, and it’s our responsibility to keep them clean at all times. So, let’s remember the 20-second rule again while washing your hands.
Avoid touching your eyes
Yes, we suggested above that you have to wash your hands. But, please don’t be imagine that it will be enough to prevent infections. The eyes are sensitive and highly reactive organs of our body. Since our hands always carry infections, you should avoid touching your eyes frequently.
Avoid Eye Infections – Live mold-free
Mold originates in damp and dirty places. You have to be careful about the surroundings you live in. If it’s a damp area, check all the corners of your home and look for dampness on the walls. Dampness leads to fungi problems. It will lead to severe eye infections.
Safety comes first
One of the common ways of getting infected is through an injury. Whenever the surface of the eye is damaged, it easily catches infections. And the presence of injury makes the recovery process harder than usual. To avoid this from happening, you should always wear protective gear to your eyes while doing extreme activities.
Give Contacts a break
Contact lenses sure are an incredible element of our lifestyles. But, since contact lenses are to be removed and put on every day, they increase the risk of eye infection. Please make sure you clean your contact lenses properly every day. Even better yet, take a break from contact lenses for a while.
