Today swimming, which has become one of the most popular sports in the world, is good for people to keep healthy. According to a survey conducted by WHO, 95.6% of people who often swim are proved to be healthier and stronger. It is not strange to see that so many people are obsessed with swimming, no matter in summer or winter. However, several things about swimming need your special attention if you want to have a healthy swimming as well as a pair of healthy eyes.

First and foremost, you should make sure that the water quality complies with the local standard.

Without the clean water, it is easy for your eyes to get infectious diseases. By the way, if you have infectious disease, please do not go to swim before you have recovered.

Secondly, you need to wear swimming glasses while diving under water.

You'd better close your eyes when diving if you do not have swimming glasses since the water pressure in the deep water will hurt your eyes.

Thirdly, if you are shortsighted, please take off your contact lenses.

That is because the microorganism in the swimming pool will pollute your contact lenses and is harmful for your eyes. What's worse, it is easy for you to lose your contact lenses because of the flow of water.

If you are in high myopia, it will be very dangerous when your eye glasses are lost and you cannot see anything. Therefore, I suggest that your nearsighted person should wear swimming glasses to protect eyes from being hurt.

In addition, I want to tell those people who are really in high myopia not do headlong dive while swimming. Such a movement will be likely to cause your retina to detach. Retina is a very important part of eye and has great influence on your vision. If you can't get timely treatment when it detaches, it may cause blindness.

Last but not least, you should do some protection before and after swimming. Wear a pair of sunglasses to avoid burning shining and use eye drop to protect you from pinkeye conjunctivitis. The inflammation of the conjunctiva is usually characterized by eye redness and is often accompanied by tears. If your eyes have these symptoms, you should visit your doctor timely. You should rub your eyes with clean towel instead of your hands after swimming.

Please remember all these tips when you are going to swim since each of you only has a pair of eyes. Once getting hurt, you will lose them forever. So be careful.
