If you’ve ever experienced stinging, burning or redness in your eyes when taking a dip in the pool, it’s because the chlorine and other chemicals used to keep the water clean can wash away the moist layer of tear film on your eyes. You can enjoy a more comfortable time in the pool by wearing a good pair of swim goggles to prevent the chemicals from affecting your eyes. Speak to your eye doctor about your options for prescription goggles!
