Some people with leprosy get their eye damaged by not blinking enough, because of weakness or loss of feeling. Blinking keeps the eyes wet and clean. Wear sunglasses with side shades, and maybe a sun hat. Close your eyes tightly often during the day, especially when dust blows. Roll your eyeballs up as you try to close eyes tight. Keep your eyes clean. Wash well around your eyes with clean water. Keep flies and dirty hands away from eyes. If necessary, use a simple eye patch. If an eye gets sore, see a health worker.

If you detect any change in your vision, directly talk to a health worker.
