Can wearing glasses protect against COVID-19? A news study suggests the answer is yes.
The study, conducted last summer in Kanpur Dehat, involved 304 patients, ages 10 to 80.
Researchers noted that COVID-19 infection through the eyes is extremely rare, but they said that droplets from the virus can easily go from the eyes to one’s nose or mouth, WABC-TV reported.
A previous study conducted in China found 5% of those hospitalized with COVID-19 wore glasses, while about 30% of the population wears glasses.
