Reasons Why You Should Never Rub Your Eyes

Published on

As far as eyes can be itchy at times, it is advisable that you never rub them, as this can mess up your health.

Below are ten reasons why you should consider not rubbing your eyes, as this comes with big, irreversible consequences.

You Might Be Exposed To Cornea Scratches
Rubbing your eyes can cause or expose you to scratches on the cornea. The cornea is the transparent part of the eye that covers the front portion of the eye. It covers the pupil, the opening at the center of the eye. Rubbing the eyes can cause permanent vision problems.

It is a Risky consequence.
Eye rubbing can lead to keratoconus, a condition where the cornea becomes thin and changes shape, causing blurry and distorted vision that makes it hard for one to see.

Aging and wrinkles
Research has it that rubbing your eyes increases the risk of lichenification, which means that the skin thickens and forms other exaggerated skin lines.

Dark Circles around the eye
This is commonly seen in those who rub their eyes more often, as this accelerates the production of skin pigmentation in the area.

Bloodshot eye
Besides the makeup smudge, rubbing the eyes is actually what causes them to wear out, as they can make your eyes look absolutely different by having some bit of blood in them that’s visible to everyone looking at you. This comes from the broken capillaries that were destroyed when rubbing the eyes.

Need For Spectacles

Rubbing your eyes destroys your eyesight, making it hard for you to see; hence, you may even start to fail to see even words that are just a few meters ahead and are visible to anyone, forcing you to acquire a lens that will help you magnify the small letters you can’t see well in the lens.
