Problems may arise in the areas of the eyes, nose, and throat for those who are usually exposed to air conditioners. Usually, it would be a nasal blockage, a dry throat, or even rhinitis.

In a study, it was found out that 28% of those exposed in air-conditioned places experienced rhinitis than those who are exposed to naturally ventilated buildings. Furthermore, 35% of air-conditioner exposed people had nasal blockage than those who aren't.

Air-conditioners wouldn't directly cause a dry eye but it won't help when having such. People having dry eye problems could feel as if their problem gets worse when exposed in air-conditioned spaces.

It is better to be in a naturally ventilated area and feel nature rushing through your body. Turn the aircon off and enjoy the natural air.
