The festival of colors is around the corner. The glorious spontaneity of the titular season is hardly matched by anything else in the calendar. Fervor, fun, revels and the abundance of joy are on the offering. So, like us, if you want the memories to flow uncapped on ‘the day’ just like the water guns & the dyes in the air – well, we’ve got the perfect read lined up for you. Here, we are going to list out a few bullet points to keep in mind to ensure that your delighted participation isn’t met by an unfortunate incident. Taking care of your eyes becomes equally important like the festivities itself. So, without further ado let’s chalk up the essentials.
1. Always carry an eyewear
This one is a no-brainer. Eyewear such as sunglass not only provide you a stylish frontier but also act as a shield to sideline the possibilities any unwanted eye injuries. Preventing toxic chemical colors from hurting your eyes, eyewear lends a priceless helping hand in regards to safeguarding your eyes.
2. Do not use toxic chemical colors
One thing you don’t want to do is to spoil your & others joyful spirit by using harmful chemicals. These chemical colors not only induce irritation to the eye surface when in contact but also cause an adverse effect on your skin & hair alike. It’s better to opt for traditional natural colors (gulaal) made of flowers & earthy fragrances to enjoy the festival to the tune of max.
3. Do not wear contact lenses
If you are one of those who wears contact lenses on a daily basis, then our advice will be to refrain from their application during the festivities. If the color gets into your eye, then the deposits in the contact lenses surface can pose a significant threat to your sight. The use of color stained fingers to remove the lenses make your eyes vulnerable to infection as well. For those who are still looking for some kind of a visual aid to help their vision – eyewear is the ideal way to go. Not only does it prove to be a helpful gear for your eyes, but the always-on cool outlook makes it a deal-breaker.
4. Do not rub your eyes
If by any reason you end getting some color on the eye surface, then the first thing you should do is to curb your instincts of rubbing your eyes. Any color particle present on the eye surface can cause scratches when rubbed. Look to clean your eyes with water as a precautionary measure and if the problem still persists, try to get some medical attention as soon as possible.
5. Do not self-medicate
Self-medication can do more harm than good and in some cases can cause serious damage. In case of any irritation or injury, avoid using any eye drops as it can fester the problem. Always consult a doctor before taking any medical action. This will benefit you and will keep your eyes safe during an unforeseen predicament.
So, here you go. Points to make sure that you have a worry-free Holi. Let the colors shine bright and the joyous moments never cease to come. Here’s wishing you a very happy Holi!
