Causes Of Blurry Eyes After Swimming?
Hello, I am Yadika. I want to ask why my time after swimming my eyes are blurry ?? the doctor answered hehe. thank you hello wr wb
Wa alaikumsalam, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Impaired vision regardless of the cause must be understood as an abnormality in one of the seeing processes. For more convenience, see the image below.
This image shows the structure of the eye, and to be able to see properly, the image must pass through all of these layers to be finally received by the eye nerves, and still has to be conveyed back to the center of vision in the back of the brain.
What we want to say, if there is an abnormality in any part of this viewing process, you could experience visual problems. When swimming, especially if you don't wear goggles, your eyes can be irritated by bacteria, viruses, small objects and the pool water itself, especially if you are swimming in public. Even so, generally these blurred eyes from swimming don't last long and don't have any long-term harmful effects, unless you find that you have a fairly extensive infection.
So if now your complaint is gone, you don't need to worry. But if you still feel your vision is blurry, you should check with an eye doctor to get a more in-depth examination of your condition. The treatment you will receive depends on the results of this examination.
Meanwhile, avoid dropping any medicine in your eyes without a doctor's prescription, keep your eyes clean by avoiding dusty, gritty and polluting places, and see a doctor immediately if the complaint worsens. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
