    As a matter of fact, chlorine is bad for eyes. On most occasions chlorine is abundant in swimming pools and your eyes will get damaged when you swim in the pool. The grave consequences of the chlorine damage include red eye, burning eye, irritated eye. If you keep ignorant of the side effects chlorine have imposed on the eye, you can suffer from permanent eye damage. To prevent the damage, try not to swim in chlorinated pool but instead in outdoor ones. And goggles and masks are badly recommended for you to keep away from chlorine.
