Why must you not rub your eyes?


No matter how itchy you feel, eye specialists warn against rubbing your eyes. Prolonged eye rubbing can weaken or distort your cornea, the protective covering of your eye, possibly leading to a condition called keratoconus. Further, rubbing your eyes with unhygienic hands can spread viral infections such as cold, flu, or conjunctivitis. #EyeHealth #Keratoconus #EyeCare #Hygiene #InfectionPrevention
