The COVID-19 global pandemic served as a wakeup call for many of us in terms of disease prevention. We learned much about how infections spread and mutate, and steps we can take to protect ourselves and loved ones from contagious diseases.
It’s hard-won wisdom, but the knowledge we’ve gathered since the new coronavirus first made headlines will help keep us all safer in the future—if we keep putting those lessons learned into practice.
Long after COVID-19 is a distant and fuzzy memory, we’ll most certainly look after our health a bit differently from now on. Here are our top three pandemic safety rules to hold on to:
BONUS TIP: If you haven’t already, break the habit of touching your face. Any germs and viruses you pick up from contaminated surfaces could end up in contact with the mucous membranes of your eyes, nose and mouth. It’s about the most effective way to get sick that we can think of!
BONUS TIP: Take advantage of home delivery services for meals and other supplies; ask for no-contact delivery. If you must go out when you’re under the weather, maintain at least 6 feet of social distancing to reduce the risk of getting others sick. They’ll secretly—or openly—thank you.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak, many people have to come to us seeking vision correction so they can avoid the foggy lenses that come along with glasses and masks, or the constant touching and repositioning of contact lenses (which creates a great opportunity for infection).
Whatever drives your desire for crisp, clear vision – to stay safe from germs, to wear masks without fog, or simply to enjoy everyday interactions with the ones you love – we want to make it a reality for you. Request your vision correction consultation now.
Missouri Eye Institute has helped thousands of patients attain freedom from glasses and contact lenses. Contact us at (800) 383-3831 to schedule a consultation or visit MissouriEye.com to learn more about our services.Tags: COVID-19 Safety Precautions
