All geared up to have a blast this Holi? Just make sure you play safe and do not cause harm to your eye sight. Each year, several cases of eye damage and sight loss are reported on Holi due to unprotected and hazardous play. The best way to avoid them is to take the following eye safety measures:
Do not rub the eyes if colour enters them. Wash them immediately with clean water. If it is accompanied by a burning sensation, wash with milk. This will help neutralise the acidity. In case of any injury to the eye, especially due to a high-speed balloon or water gun, contact emergency health services immediately. Any delay will only make the injury worse.
Sightsavers wishes everyone a happy, fun and safe Holi. Enjoy drenching yourself in colour without worry by observing the above-mentioned eye safety tips.
Seeing is believing and what you get to see these days is no hogwash - don't be surprised if everything in your surroundings seems blurry.
We’ve all done it at one time or another - when applying mascara we get a little too close to our eyeballs and the result is a teary, black mess.
