Relieving Smoke Related Eye Irritation
The current smoke from wild fires is wreaking havoc on our respiratory systems as well as our eyes. What can be done to relieve the irritation caused by this?
- If you wear soft contact lenses: don’t wear them when the Air Quality Index is above 150. Pollutants will be absorbed by the contacts and potentially cause severe corneal irritation. Do not use medicated eye drops (including decongestant eye drops) while wearing contacts.
- Irrigate your eyes with 0.9% sterile saline solution to rinse contaminants from your eyes.
- If you feel that you require more aggressive treatment, please contact us at https://local.demandforce.com/b/broadwayvision/schedule
