On a particularly gloomy day, I decided to run a few errands on my trusty moped and as predicted it started raining heavily. Although I was prepared and had a raincoat on, I did not foresee what the rain would do to my glasses. It was impossible to see anything because of the raindrops clinging to my glasses for dear life and had to pull over every few minutes to wipe them off.
Surely made me wish I had a pair of wipers on my glasses!
If you thought the woes of an eyeglasses wearer stops there, then you are wrong, my friend! While traveling by car with my husband the other day, we closed our windows and turned on the air conditioner as it was raining cats and dogs. Everything was fine until my husband decided to feel the rain, so we opened the windows and guess what, due to the temperature difference, my glasses fogged up immediately, and I could not see anything, again!

The happy moment of the first rain of the season will definitely brighten up your day when you are inside your home with a hot cuppa!

More importantly, it could prove to be very dangerous too.
While many spectacle lenses claim to come with different coatings, you know the result of most. Here comes the benefit of contact lenses, as a reflex you blink when something comes near your eyes, which means the raindrop stays out of your contact lenses and eyes.

Lens Care Tips For Monsoons In India
- Carry your contact lens kit and glasses in the event of being stranded overnight in a storm.
- Do not touch or rub your eyes without washing your hands.
- Do not expose your eyes deliberately to raindrops. They absorb atmospheric pollutants which could be hazardous for the eyes, especially in industrial areas.
- Children love splashing through water-logged roads. This could be risky as waterborne bacteria may cause eye infections like conjunctivitis.
- Those having high prescription numbers should keep a spare pair of spectacles at all times as an added measure of safety.
It is better to be aware of these few essentials that will keep you safeguarded during the rains. In case of irritation or redness of the eye, discontinue wearing your lens and consult your ophthalmologist.
