Protect Your Eyes from the Coronavirus

Protect Your Eyes from the Coronavirus

It might be seen as common sense when health officials say to refrain from touching your eyes, mouth, and nose to prevent the spread of coronavirus. 

Something that you may not think about is protecting your eyes, throughout the day, to protect yourself from being exposed.

Experts are now saying that coronavirus can be spread through the eyes, therefore, limiting your eye exposure can help keep you safe in the current pandemic.

Wearing optical and sunglass frames can help to protect your eyes against infected droplets. These droplets are spread from those sick with the virus spraying their saliva when coughing, sneezing, or talking.

A person can carry the virus for up to 10 days without showing any symptoms, which is why it is crucial to protect your eyes at all points of the day.
Health officials from the American Academy of Ophthalmology recommend switching from contacts to glasses during the global COVID-19 pandemic, if possible.

Substituting optical frames for contact lenses can lessen irritation and force you to place on your eyes and to think twice before touching them.

Regardless if you’re inside reading a book or outside on your next adventure, wearing a pair of frames can reduce the touchpoints to your eyes in an effort to slow the spread in your community.
