    If you swim in pool without swimming goggles and let your eyes under water, you are in high risks of eye infection no matter you blink eyes or not. You know, the water in pool is not so clear as we can see. It activities some microbe and bacterium that easy cause your eyes infection. So, do not risk your eyes, and protect your eyes with a pair of swim goggles.

    Yes, you will get eyes infection if you blink underwater in a swimming pool. As we know that there are many dirty things in the water and they can invade in your contacts. In that way, your eyes can be infected easily. Anyway, you should be careful about it. But on the other hand, you can wear contacts when you go to the water. Because contact lenses are made of perfect design and have the wonderful quality. They can give you good vision and the cool image because of their special material.

    The possibility of getting eye infection underwater in a swimming pool without the eye goggles is high. As we know, there must be a lot of invisible bacterium and virus in the water, especially in the water of swimming pool. If you blink your eyes under the water, the direct touch with the poor water must make your eyes get infected. You'd better prepare a pair of eye goggles for you.
