Pools & hot tubs

Water recreation is a great way to relax and exercise, but it’s no place to forget about your eyes. No matter how well they’re maintained, pools and hot tubs contain human bacteria. If you’re not careful, eye infections can impair vision.

When you’re in a pool, wear a snug pair of swimming goggles. Also be careful when wearing contact lenses in water environments.

In hot tubs there is a particular bacteria risk. Ensure that you keep your eyes out of the water, or provide yourself with a thorough shower rinsing afterwards.
