A “hidden link” between Corona and glasses … a study reveals a surprise


At first glance, it may seem that there is no relationship between wearing medical glasses and infection with the emerging corona virus, but a recent study revealed a surprising link between the two givers.

The study conducted by Indian researchers and highlighted by the British newspaper “The Telegraph”, concluded that users of vision glasses are less likely to contract “Covid 19” than others, as they have less “rubbing eyes with fingers” automatically.

Since the emergence of the new Corona virus began more than a year ago, doctors have warned against using hands to touch the mouth, nose or eyes, warning that this leads to the transmission of Corona infection, as the virus finds an entrance into the human body through these organs.

Researchers in India studied 304 people (223 males and 81 females) at KV Hospital designated for treating corona in Kanpur Daihat, northern India, between August 26 and September 8 of last year, and they were between the ages of 10 and 80 years, and they all reported symptoms of the virus. And they were asked about the use of medical glasses.

And 19 percent of them said they wore glasses most of the time, which led to results indicating that those who used glasses for 8 hours a day were less likely to contract the Coronavirus.

According to the “Telegraph”, the study, which can be viewed via this link, showed that the risk of contracting corona was two to 3 times lower among eyeglasses users, compared to those who do not wear them.

“An individual has a habit of touching his face at a rate of 23 times per hour, and his eyes touching an average of 3 times per hour. Long-term use of glasses may prevent repeated touching or rubbing of the eyes,” she said.

The study, reported by the scientific site “Medrexif”, which displays unpublished messages about health: “The current experiments showed that the risk of infection with corona was about two to 3 times less with wearing glasses compared to after wearing them.”

The researchers said that the tear ducts in the eye could be a pathway for the virus to pass into the nasal cavity and then the lungs, so “touching the eye and rubbing it with a contaminated hand may be an important route of infection.”
