Mercury is soaring this season. From forests to humans, everything is burning in it. 75 per cent of people are in the grip of dehydration. Every fifth death due to heat waves is happening in India. Hospitals are on high alert. Heatwave has now become a big challenge for health experts. The good thing is that people are changing their lifestyles to avoid it and this is also very important. Because the risk of falling ill due to scorching heat has doubled. Apart from the heart and brain, the risk of damage to the intestines, kidneys, lungs, liver and eyes has increased due to heat. The most sensitive among these are the eyes, which come in direct contact with hot air. People take many measures to avoid heat, but due to a lack of information, they often forget to protect their eyes.

Diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, and stress not only affect the heart and kidneys but also weaken the eyesight.
