Publicado por Kandid li en

This science-backed trick is a throwback from 2011—but it’s really coming in handy right now. You know what’s not fun? Wearing a face mask to help slow the spread of COVID-19 like a responsible citizen, and then being rewarded with totally fogged-up glasses. Yes, we’d rather get foggy glasses than catch or spread this unprecedented virus—or go against CDC recommendations to wear a face covering in public—but it’s still a nuisance. In fact, medical professionals (and many others) have dealt with inconvenient, face-mask-induced spectacle condensation on the job for far longer than the rest of us have since trying to quell this pandemic.

Publicado por Kandid li en

It's not only so you stop touching your face so much. The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) recently revealed that conjunctivitis—aka pink eye, an irritation of the eye that can cause redness, swelling, and discharge—may be a rare, early symptom of COVID-19. Now, the AAO is issuing a number of coronavirus eye safety tips—and one includes opting out of wearing contact lenses for the time being. In a recent statement, ophthalmologist Sonal Tuli, MD, a spokesperson for the AAO, advised that those who wear contact lenses should stick to wearing their glasses for a while. "Consider wearing glasses more often, especially if you...
