16 tips : How to Clean the Eye

How to Clean the Eye:

  • First, wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Use a cotton ball to clean your eye.
  • Pour the eye wash solution on the cotton ball. Alternatively, you can boil the cotton balls in water and use them after they have cooled down.
  • Wipe your eye gently from the inside (near your nose) out (toward your ears).
  • Don’t use the same cotton ball more than once.
  • Don’t let your children play with medicine bottles.
  • When you open a bottle,  do so by keeping the nozzle a little away from your face and eyes.
  • Do not let your children handle glass bottles.
  • Put bottles in the fridge, not in the freezer.
  • Choose safe toys for your children, which suit their age. Avoid buying darting toys and toys with sharp edges such as bow and arrow, which may hit or injure the eye from a distance.
  • Watch your children while at play, and teach them safe activities. Stone throwing during the play causes severe injuries, which should be avoided.
  • Keep daily use items like detergents, disinfectants and chemicals in a safe place and out of children’s reach.
  • Don’t allow your children to play with fireworks, which are dangerous. Have a close supervision during festivals like Diwali. Always keep a bucket of water nearby while bursting crackers.
  • Keep children away from kitchenware which could harm them. Knives, scissors, etc should be kept in a safe, closed place.
  • Teach your children how to protect their eyes by wearing sunglasses whenever they are out. You should also prevent them from looking directly at the sun.
  • Don’t allow your children to use laser pens.

Never share your medications with anyone. Keep all medication (eye and others) out of reach of children.
