Have you ever given a thought at how well protected your eyes are? I mean, the air is filled with dust particles; tiny insects are always flying around – yet, it’s very rare that something goes in your eyes. Even when we do some cleaning chores, it only takes a little squinting and you can work with ease.
Your eyelids are probably the smartest ones when it comes to reflex actions. Be it dust, or an insect, or a strong wind or a flashy light or even a sudden blow – your eyes are almost always protected.
Why are the eyes designed like this? Because eyes are very sensitive and extremely important at the same time. This is why, an orbit of skull bones, a pair of eyebrows, and a pair of superfast eyelids always stand guard.
But when nothing works and you injure your eyes, what do you do? You go to the doctor, yes. But before that, try some first aid for eye injuries. The type of aid depends on what issues you are having with your eye. So, be careful and don’t swap one aid for a different type of injury.
Here are a few tips regarding first aid for eye injuries:
It’s common that people practice a lot of first aids for eye injuries. While this is very appreciable, you should know how to properly do it and also should know when to go to a specialist.
Eyes are precious; be careful!
Prevention is better than cure. Hence wear your helmet while driving and goggles to prevent from dust.
While playing with crackers be careful not to injure your eyes. Put your protective glasses on. Be safe.
