Here are some tips to help you deal with eye infection
1. Maintain Good Hygiene
Observing basic hygiene is the most important thing that can prove helpful in preventing eye infection. Bear in mind to wash your hands frequently. Avoid touching or rubbing your eyes. It is also not a good idea to share towels.
2. Cold Water Splashes
Splashing or washing your eyes with cold water several times in a day may eradicate the presence of any foreign bodies in the eyes and bring relief from irritation and puffiness. Then again, putting a cold pack on the infected eye can aid in soothing the dilated blood vessels in the eye.
3. Warm Compress
Gently applying a warm compress at regular intervals to the affected eye can help in easing out some of the pain and inflammation.
4. Avoid Eye Makeup
In case you are prone to allergies, it is best to stay away from using eye makeup during pregnancy to avoid eye infections.
5. Protection for Eyes
Always remember to wear a pair of good sunglasses when stepping out to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays of the sun, dust, and other pollutants.
6. Avoid Contact Lenses
As much as possible, avoid wearing contact lenses because dry eyes and infections can worsen the situation and increase the discomfort or pain. For a while, or at least till the eyesight is back to normal, wear glasses instead.
