In addition to the summer heat that can induce heat stroke, cerebrovascular and some other diseases, some eye problems may be caused that need extra attention. Therefore, everyone needs timely eye protection in the summer.
Hot weather in summer provides favorable conditions for the growth of bacteria and viruses. It is also a high season for pink eye. To prevent catching the pink eye virus, do not rub your eyes with dirty hands. In addition, during the high season of pink eye, it is best not to swim in swimming pools, rivers, and lakes where the water quality is not up to par because the pink eye virus can be transmitted through water sources.
Due to the hot weather in summer, there is usually a lot of sweat. For example, when you rub your eyes with your hands while working or exercising, there is a risk that sweat will enter your eyes, along with bacteria and other microorganisms. Therefore, try not to wipe sweat directly with your hands.
You should avoid going out between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. in the summer. Because this is the time when UV radiation is most substantial and is an objective factor in causing eye disease, if you must go out, you should protect yourself by wearing sunglasses, a hat, and a sunshade. Minimize exposure to the sun.
Cool your eyes often in summer. The eyes like to be calm and are afraid of heat, so if they are overcharged with heart fire or liver fire, they will become red, swollen, and congested. Washing your face often with clean, cold water can reduce eye disease and strengthen your disease resistance.
Every summer is a peak period for the onset of dry eye disease, and air conditioning is also a powerful trigger for dry eye disease. Prolonged blowing air conditioning is prone to dry eyes; some people with eye inflammation can also cause eye redness, fear of light, looking at things accompanied by a stinging sensation, etc. Remind everyone to blink more at work, pay more attention to eye care, do not stay under the air conditioning for a long time.
Of course, we can also eat more vegetables and fruits rich in vitamin A and vitamin C in summer to achieve the purpose of eye protection. Vitamin A stimulates the cornea and can repair the corneal epithelium damaged by UV rays.
The eyes are a very delicate part of the body and are highly susceptible to invasion, which can cause various inflammatory diseases if not taken care of. In addition, bright eyes are not always natural, and eye care is a big task in the summer.
