Avoid touching your eyes

Touching or rubbing your eyes before washing them is an easy way to spread conditions such as conjunctivitis. Ensure that your hands are clean at all times.

If you have contracted conjunctivitis or any other eye condition, see your doctor for treatment.

Remember to always see an optometrist or your doctor if you are concerned about your vision, the health of your eyes, or if you just require more eye health information.
