(WCMH) — Those looking for choice ways to strengthen their eyes from final week’s solar obscure are now seeking medical diagnosis after putting sunblock on their eyeballs.
Nurse practitioner Trish Patterson says she hasn’t seen any cases of repairs by looking directly during a sun, though she and her colleagues have seen a few patients who gifted pain after putting sunblock in their eyes.
“One of my colleagues during light here settled yesterday that they had patients presenting during their hospital that put sunscreen on their eyeball, and presented that they were carrying pain and they were referred to an ophthalmologist,” she said.
According to a National Capital Poison Center, sunscreen removing in your eyes can means pain and irritation. They suggest rinsing with using H2O as a best initial aid.
