How can people see when they swim under water with all that chlorine in pools doesn't that burn their eyes?

Every time I would go to a swimming pool that water would burn my eyes with opening my eyes under water. And they don't use goggles either.

  • Their bodies have probably used to it + I don't even know how people can swim with their eyes open under the water... since when I do I can't see crap anyway >_<

  • If you spend like over 40mins under the water you start experiencing inflamation sensation in your eyes for sure. I personally dont like swimming still.

    • for me I get that burning sensation within 10 seconds underwater.

  • I don't know, which makes me too scared to learn how to swim underwater... (I do dog paddle, though.)
