Protect Your Eyes this Summer with these Easy Hacks
With scorching heat and excessive sunlight, taking care of your eyes during the summer can be a challenge. Here are some simple, yet effective hacks to protect your eyes this summer.
Make a habit of washing your hands: Washing your hands is essential and helps to avoid the contraction of eye-related conditions such as conjunctivitis.
Maintain a good diet: Eat fruits, which have plenty of water content, and avoid aerated drinks that tend to cause dry eye syndrome.
Use eye drops: Use lubricating drops to prevent your eyes from becoming itchy. In addition, use eye masks to keep eyes fresh and cool.
Wear the correct eyewear: Making sure your sunglasses provide adequate UVA/UVB protection is paramount. Consider sunglasses an investment, not just a fashion statement.
