If a tube of sunscreen, all kinds of hats and scarves and odour-fighting deodorants have found a place in your bag and wardrobe, you are ready to welcome summers. But wait! Did you know that just like your skin, your eyes also need extra care in this harsh weather? Your eyes become prone to infections during summers among other host of diseases.
The rise in temperature and pollutants in the air makes your eyes vulnerable to contracting allergies. Some of the common symptoms of this condition include itching, redness and burning sensation.
Conjunctivitis is a very common condition during summers, recognized by symptoms like redness of eyes, pricking sensation, discharge and watery eyes.
Styes are a cause of bacterial infection which occurs in the eyelid and grows into swelling in one or both eyelids. The common symptoms are redness and pain.
Dry eye syndrome occurs usually during this season due to increase in temperature and quick tear film evaporation.
Never go out in the sun without sunglasses. Choose sunglasses which have 100 percent UV protection.
Take proper sleep for at least six to eight hours. This will help your eyes to rejuvenate in a natural way.
If you find puffiness or redness in the eyes, splash cold water a few times a day. This will help you relieve the symptoms.
