    Prima Saigon: Our eyes are the windows to the soul, a boundless source of emotions and knowledge. Therefore, it’s essential to protect your eyes to maintain the best vision possible. If you have the habit of rubbing your eyes, stop immediately! It’s one of the factors that can damage the surface of your eyes.

    Rubbing your eyes can increase the risk of rupturing blood vessels, causing swelling and redness in the eyes. This not only damages the eyes but also creates discomfort, making you want to rub your eyes even more. Additionally, when your hands come into contact with your eyes, it can transfer bacteria to your eyelashes and eyelids, increasing the risk of infection. This careless action can potentially cause scratches on the cornea. If not properly cared for, these scratches can lead to severe scarring and significant vision loss.

    The harmful effects of eye rubbing include:

    • Scratches on the cornea
    • Bleeding
    • Swelling and redness
    • Eye infections
    • Increased eye pressure
    • Increased astigmatism

    The negative impact of excessive eye rubbing can result in decreased vision. Therefore, when you experience itching or feel a foreign object in your eyes, it’s essential to care for your eyes properly. If itching eyes persist, seeking care from ophthalmologist is crucial to improve the situation completely.
