Factors Causing Eye Damage

start exploring

Use of Computers

Using a computer for long periods of time can be harmful to your eyes. As the prevalence of computer use increases, so does the incidence of dry, irritated eyes.

Usage of Phone 

The blue light from your phone's screen is just as harmful to your eyes as that from your computer's. You should reduce the amount of time you spend staring at your phone.

Overusing Contact Lenses

When wearing contact lenses, it's important to follow all the instructions carefully to avoid damaging your eyes and vision.

Wearing Lenses in Water

If you wear contact lenses, you should remove them before getting in the shower or going for a swim. Invisible bacteria in water is a leading cause of serious eye infections.

Sleeping in Contact Lenses

If you wear your contact lenses to bed, they could dry out on your eye's surface, causing tiny holes through which bacteria could enter and cause an ulcer.

Sitting in Warm, Dry Air

Eyes can be damaged by prolonged exposure to the warm, dry air produced by central heating systems. Because of the dryness, this can harm the cornea of the eye.

Rubbing your eyes

The risk of developing corneal thinning is greatly increased in people who rub their eyes excessively.

Not Wearing Sunglasses

Failure to wear sunglasses increases the risk of developing cataracts and skin cancer on the eyelids.
