Summer brings vacations and endless fun in forests, on mountains for trekking and on beaches. It also brings unbearable heat which is hard to fight off, especially in areas where temperature goes high beyond tolerance. When this happens, people protect their skin by using umbrellas or by putting on sun screening cosmetics, eyes, however, remain uncovered and prone to damage by sun
Here are some tips for keeping your eyes cool in the summer and beat the heat.
1. Use sunglasses:
Sunglasses are the best defense against the sun as they filter the sunlight, by letting the useful light in and by blocking out the harmful UV rays. They will not only keep your eyes cool, but will make you look cool and prettier, so next time you go out in the sun, don't forget your eyes' best friends.
2. Stay hydrated:
Hydration is essential for a properly working body, so it is for eyes too. The eyes might feel friction or may get more vulnerable to heat if they lose their moisture. So, make sure to have to keep your body hydrated by your favorite drinks. You can also use your optometrist’s recommended eye drops.
