Washing eyelids Kindly
Hi doctor, is washing eyelids kindly with fingers harmful for eyes? What if that is repeated for many times a day?
Washing the eyes kindly is not detrimental if:
- The washing movements are soft, and not exerted against the eyeball
- The water used for washing and rinsing is clear.
I have commonly observed subtle corneal deformations which may be caused by repeated eye frictions, and it is probably better to develop a technique for cleaning the eyelids and removing the makeup which does not incur vigorous and extended massage of the corneas. It may be preferable to "rub" the eyelid against the orbital bones (around the eye) than use the Globes as "cushions".
