EYE CARE FOR KIDS WHILE SWIMMING

Taking a dip in the swimming pool in summer is both,a matter of enjoyment as well as a source of respite from the heat.swimming as a recreational activity can be fun but there are some do’s and dont’s to keep it safe too.  DO’S- WEAR GOGGLES WHILE SWIMMING- Swimming pools are usually treated with chlorine to reduce the chances of infection. This chlorine has a tendency to wash away the protective film of tears from our eyes,resulting in irritation,redness and watering of eyes. Additionally,chlorine by itself may be a source of irritation to the eyes. Moreover, despite chlorination,some bacteria may still persist in the pool which may harm the eyes by causing conjunctivitis. So it is advisable that kids wear goggles which cover the eyes completely,to physically protect their eyes in the pool.  WASH YOUR EYES-Kids are advised to wash their eyes properly after getting out of the pool. This is to ensure that any chemical adherent to the eye will be washed out. Additionally,it also helps in soothing the eyes which may be irritated because of the loss of the tear film. USE SUN GLASSES AT THE POOL SIDE- A pair of sunglasses of good quality , which give protection from both UV a and UV b rays, and cover the eyes from all the sides is advisable while relaxing by the pool side.  STAY HYDRATED- It is advisable to drink adequate amounts of fluids to counteract the dehydrating effect of summer as well as to reduce the chances of dry eyes in children who swim regularly. Fluids can include plain simple water,coconut water,buttermilk and fruit juices. Carbonated drinks are best avoided.  DONT’S- AVOID CONTACT LENSES-  Contact lenses must be removed and a glass of suitable power be used while swimming..swimming  with contact lenses damages the lens. It also causes infected organisms to adhere to the lens or to the cornea which can result in severe irritation and even a serious infection of the cornea called infected keratitis. EWW adhering to the above set of instructions will make swimming both safe and enjoyable. So,just go ahead and take the plunge into the pool.
