Eyes are very delicate and need special attention with regards to cleanliness and protection from foreign objects and harmful light rays.
A little carelessness can lead to permanently reduced vision or other eye damages. The children should be taught right from the pre-school days for proper eye care. Most schools enforce regular eye checkups that help the parents to know if the child has any special eye needs, which otherwise may go un-noticed causing further damage.
Contact lenses are very popular, especially amongst young adults, who sometimes in the heat of things, handle their contact lenses carelessly. Contact lenses are in direct touch with the cornea for extended periods and it is common for bacteria to transferred into the eye through the use of these lenses. Even though it might be routine, the proper method of cleaning and handling of the contact lenses should be followed to prevent complications in one of the most sensitive and delicate set of organs in the body.
