The cold wind in winter sometimes blows continuously for 3-4 months! When the eyes are stimulated by cold wind for a long time, the water will evaporate and accelerate, and it will feel dry and secrete a lot of tears. Dry eyes for a long time can cause great damage to the eyes and are more prone to eye diseases!

For snow, the reflection is close to 96%. The strong ultraviolet rays + reflected light will make the eyes more prone to fatigue, and serious snow blindness will occur.

3. Protect the eyes from external force

In winter, it is generally easy to blow with strong winds, because heavy snow or sand rolled up by the wind speed is more likely to hurt the eyes or around the eyes, which will cause direct damage to the eyes, or be infected with eye diseases. If you wear sunglasses, then you can better protect your glasses from sand and rocks blowing into your eyes.
