As we adjust to the new normal in Phase 2, how are you keeping safe when you go out and about?
According to a medical study* which received funding from the World Health Organization, and published recently in The Lancet medical journal, “using eye protection, wearing face masks and keeping a distance from others could help reduce the risk of COVID-19 or similar infections.”
However, as advised by the American Academy of Ophthalmology, although “corrective lenses or sunglasses can shield your eyes from infected respiratory droplets”, do keep in mind that “the virus can still reach your eyes from the exposed sides, tops and bottoms of your glasses.”
With new developments happening as the pandemic continues, I am personally adopting a play it safe attitude. I would gladly don a pair of sunglasses as an additional layer of protection on top of my face mask and regular hand washing. Why not, right?
