Summer eye health: Protect your eyes from the sun and seasonal hazards

With the arrival of summer, it is essential to pay special attention to the health of our eyes. Prolonged exposure to the sun and other seasonal factors can negatively affect our vision if we don't take the proper steps to protect them.

Sun protection is essential. The sun can damage our eyes if we are not properly protected. That's why it's crucial to wear sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays. Polarized lenses are an excellent choice, as they reduce glare and improve visual clarity, especially in outdoor environments. Our recommendation is Mustela glasses, which you can find at Farmacia Paseo del Mar for both children and parents.

It is essential to make sure that they fit properly and completely cover our eyes and the contour of our face. This will not only protect us from the sun, but also from other irritants such as dust and wind.

On the other hand, proper hydration and rest are key. Spending a lot of time outdoors can cause eyestrain and dry eyes. Therefore, it is important to stay well hydrated and take regular breaks to give our eyes a well-deserved rest. Our recommendation is Bañoftal eye drops for dry or irritated eyes.

Hygiene is also another important aspect. Washing your hands regularly and avoiding rubbing your eyes can help prevent the spread of germs and reduce the risk of eye infections. We can clean our eyes with specific eye hygiene wipes.

By following these simple but effective tips, we can protect our eyes from the sun and other seasonal hazards, and enjoy a summer full of fun and carefree outdoor activities.
