Summers are a great time to spend some time at the pool but it is often ignored that spending time at the pool has its own hazards. If not cared for, your eyes are at most risk.
But don’t worry! With the following eye safety tips properly followed, you can ensure a great pool weekend:
The pool water contains chlorine which can be harsh for your eyes. Not only does it create itching when it comes in contact with your eyes, but can create further infections. It also avoids other accidents. So, always wear pool goggles while at swimming for spending time at the pool.
No contact lenses
It’s no advice but strict instructions. Don’t wear your contact lenses at the pool as they might be damaged and react adversely to your cornea. Contact lenses should be kept away during batching in the fresh water (your shower) also.
Rinse eyes with fresh water

Once you are done swimming, always make it a point to wash your eyes with fresh water to avoid accumulation of any kind of impurities.
If your eyes are sensitive, always keep some saline eye drop handy with you. You can consult your ophthalmologist to prescribe you one.
