“First, wash your hands with high-quality soap or Dettol, which prevents dirt and bacteria from entering your hands because they can easily reach your inner eye. However, many people use sanitizer instead of soap or Dettol to kill bacteria. While it is okay in other cases, in the case of the eyes, do not use sanitizer.” Researchers base their findings on the effects of alcohol on the eyes, which can cause swelling and damage.

Step 2: Find a comfortable seating area
