How to protect your eyes from the cold

The eyes must not only be protected from the sun in the summer months, but also from low temperatures . In winter, in fact, windy days and the passage from a cold to a too heated one can cause troublesome problems, such as excessive watering, burning, dry eyes and irritative conjunctivitis. Furthermore, low temperatures can promote inflammation of the upper airways (laryngitis, pharyngitis and rhinitis) which can also cause eye problems due to contiguity.

To protect the eyes it is good to use glasses even in winter, especially if there is sun and wind, and resort to artificial tears in very heated environments.
