Whether swimming, sailing, water skiing or scuba diving, it’s important that you take precautions to protect your eyes.

Wear goggles to protect your eyes when in the water as chlorine can irritate the eyes and may cause redness.

Do not swim wearing contact lenses. Always remove your lenses before showering or using a hot tub because there are bugs in the water which may lead to a particularly nasty eye infection and wearing contact lenses increases the risk of contracting such an infection.

If you are a contact lens or glasses wearer, prescription swimming goggles are available at a modest cost.

Very important: Always make sure you discuss and make decisions about your eye care based upon a formal appointment with your optician.
