Hooray, summer is coming! We are all ready to welcome the sun and the sea! And our eyes? If you have sensitive eyes, don’t make the same mistakes this summer, don’t ignore our suggestions 🙂
With global warming, the sun has begun to show its face more. Especially in summer, dryness in the eyes and around the eyes, eye infections and allergies increase much more. Kubilhan Elmas, a specialist from Kudret Eye Hospital, says that the ultraviolet rays in sunlight are not only harmful to our skin, but also to our eyes, and lists the following suggestions to protect us…
* You should not expose yourself to the sun at noon when the sun’s rays are strong.
* Sunglasses should not be considered an accessory used only in summer; he must also realize that it is very necessary to protect the eyes. Sunglasses with ultraviolet protection block 99-100% of UV-A and UV-B waves from the sun’s rays.
* Avoid sunglasses with poor quality lenses.
* Those who use prescription glasses and contact lenses should definitely use prescription sunglasses.
* Barrier creams that prevent ultraviolet absorption should be used for dry eyelids and eye contour and increased sensitivity.
* Do not go out in the intense sun, especially at midday, and if possible, favor shady places.
* Those who are interested in sea sports should absolutely use protective glasses in terms of hygiene and impact.
* People who lack tears should keep artificial tears on hand on summer days.
* Contact lens wearers should wear swimming goggles when swimming. Because chlorine, especially in swimming pools, causes an increase in allergic problems.
* People with mild conjunctivitis should use anti-allergic eye drops (if necessary, during exposure to heat and sun) to prevent the onset of allergies during the summer months, and to protect the eyes with protective hats and sunglasses for the medications to be taken. more efficient.
* In the event of redness, itching or infection of the eye, the eyes should never be rubbed, especially in unsanitary conditions such as at the seaside.
* Ocular changes should not be overlooked and an ophthalmologist should be consulted.
