Chlorine isn’t the reason that you have red eyes after swimming. Chlorine is added to pool water in order to help balance the chemicals and keep the pool safe for swimmers.

Swim ‘N Fun launches their newest article featuring tips on preventing red eyes when swimming. Bob Wright, owner of Swim ‘N Fun, states, “Chlorine isn’t the reason that you have red eyes after swimming. Chlorine is added to pool water in order to help balance the chemicals and keep the pool safe for swimmers. However, when chlorine combines with contaminants such as urine, sweat, fecal matter, sunscreen, or dirt, it can cause an issue. These contaminants combined with chlorine and form Chloramine causes red eyes and a strong chlorine odor in pools and hot tubs.”

According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), health effects from Chloramines can include, “respiratory symptoms such as nasal irritation, coughing and wheezing (especially in those that have asthma), red and itchy eyes, skin irritation, and rashes.”

Swim ‘N Fun offers these tips to help Chloramines from forming in the pool:

  • Use the bathroom before entering the pool
  • Take frequent restroom breaks
  • If a person is sick or has diarrhea then do not enter the pool
  • Shower before getting in the pool
  • Rinse feet and legs to remove dirt
