With Holi round the corner, don't forget to safegaurd your eyes. Here're some tips.

1 Shield your eyes: Make sure that your eyes are protected all the time. Wear a normal glass or put on sunglasses.

2 Play safe: Always use non-toxic colours. Avoid metal pichkaris or anything that has sharp edges.

3 Wash off: If colours come in contact with your eyes accidentally, wash your eyes with clean cold water immediately.

4 Don’t wear lenses: Avoid wearing contact lenses when playing holi, as the lenses would absorb the colour, causing eye inflammation.

5 Roll up your windows: If you are travelling, keep the windows of your car rolled.
