How do you deal with swollen eyes due to swimming overnight?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Pool water is generally added with certain chemicals that function to kill bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms in the water, and keep the water clean. These chemicals in swimming pool water when exposed to the eye can cause mild irritation to the eye and cause interference with the outer layer that smooths the eyeball. Symptoms that are often caused include discomfort in the eyes, dry eyes, reddish eyes, watery eyes, itchy eyes, and can also cause impaired vision (not permanent). Sometimes this eye irritation can also cause swelling of the eyelids.


Some things you can try to do:

Wash your eyes using clean running water
use eye drops to treat minor eye irritation (for example eye drops containing tetrahydrozoline)
use eye drops that lubricate the eyes (artificial tears)
compress the outside of your eyes with cold compresses

Henceforth when you swim, always use swimming goggles to avoid exposure to chemicals in the pool to your eyes and also wash your eyes with clean running water immediately after swimming.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
