Eye rubbing is common with many of us. Most of us rub our eyes sometimes without even recognizing that we do it. But it can have detrimental effects on our eyes. Eye rubbing causes inflammation to occur making our eyes and lids red. It has been linked to eye diseases such as cataracts and keratoconus. It also loosens the skin around the eyes contributing to drooping eyelids as we age. It can have detrimental effects if we have had recent eye surgery. So next time you're tempted to rub think twice.
