The airborne pollution is high, so people report eye discomfort 3 to 4 times more. It is of utmost importance that you protect yourself from this unnecessary suffering.The Presence of sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and nitric acid can make the tear film of your eyes more acidic. There can be serious conditions like redness, watery eyes, burning and itchy sensation.
