Wearing masks has turned into a trend during this COVID-19 pandemic. However, it is not just the mask that is a must but we also need to maintain social distancing and wash our hands frequently to avoid the virus from entering our body. However, recently a research team from China has advised the need for a fourth defensive tool to tackle from being infected by the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. This fourth measure is to protect our eyes using goggles or any form of spectacles. It has also being specified that donning a Ray-Ban will not necessarily provide the superpower to fight off coronavirus attack.

But, the team from Nanchang University and three other Chinese medical institutions has found the people wearing eyeglasses for almost 8 Hours or more to provide some protection against the SARS-CoV-2 infection. On the contrary, very few proportions of patients were found to wear eyeglasses when compared to the general population. In reality, the eyeglasses act as a barrier as people tend to avoid touching their eyes when wearing it. It does not mean that the public start roaming the streets wearing face shields, goggles, and other eye protective equipment. The study suggests that to obtain substantial protection from SARS-CoV-2 infection the goggles or any ocular personal protection could help.

The researchers are still confirming their findings by comparing groups of the earlier and recently effected patients to gain better insights of the use of eye protection as a defensive practice. The eye protection could be the new trend that can help save us from being infected. There are also chances that many eyewear manufacturers could come up with highly innovative and protective eyeglasses to combat the pandemic situation that affected majority of the regions across the globe.
