The 8 Worst Things You Can Do To Your Eyes?
Your mom probably told you that sitting too close to the TV would wreck your eyes. Turns out, she’s wrong—there’s no evidence to show that does lasting damage, the American Academy of Ophthalmology says.But there are plenty of other things you’re doing that can set your eyeballs up for painful infections, freaky injuries, and more. And you’re probably guilty of at least a few of them. Here, 8 everyday eye habits that are way riskier than you think—and what you should do to steer clear.(Halt chronic inflammation and treat more than 45 diseases with
Bad Habit #2: Rubbing your eyes
Even though it feels good, vigorously rubbing your eyes can rupture blood vessels, making your eyes look bloodshot. Not so attractive, right?
Bad Habit #3: Touching your eyes before washing your hands
The average person touches their face almost 16 times an hour, found one Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene study.
Bad Habit #4: Picking at your eyelashes
Eyelashes exist to help block dirt, dust, and debris from entering your eyes—and pulling them out ups the odds that foreign particles can make their way in.
Bad Habit #5: Using water (or spit) to rinse your contact lenses
Saliva is loaded with germy bacteria, and tap water can contain harmful amoebas—bacteria-like organisms that can cause Acanthamoeba keratitis, an infection that can leave you permanently blind.
Bad Habit #6: Swimming without goggles
Goggles might look a little dorky. But they form a waterproof seal around your eyes to block out potentially harmful compounds in the water.
Bad Habit #7: Using Visine all the time
Weirdly, eye-whitening drops can actually make your eyes redder. The drops work by constricting the blood vessels in your eyes to reduce blood flow, helping them appear less bloodshot. But using them on a regular basis causes your eyes to adapt to the drops.
Bad Habit #8: Skipping protection
More than 40% of eye injuries are caused by things like home repairs, yard work, and cleaning—and guys are at greater risk for getting hurt than women, according to the American Academy of Ophthalmology.
