Memorial Day weekend is just days away, which means the official swim season will soon be in full swing. To ensure the fun in the sun is free from harm, it’s important to remain mindful of helpful swimming habits that promote eye safety.
Chlorine is designed to keep swimming pool water safe. But, the harsh chemicals can also be eye irritants. Salt water is also filled with contaminants. This makes it important to wear properly fitting goggles. When worn, eyes are protected from chlorine, as well as any bacteria in the water that could cause infection.
So, when making pool plans or breaking away to the beach, be sure to grab goggles.
