Can opening your eyes under water damage your eyes?

not really because your eyes have a thin layer of skin in front of them called the corneas. they will protect your eyes but if the water is full of silt and sand then your eyes could be scratched. Chemicals like chlorine also could damage the eyes but not much, its more of an irritant

Don't think so. Best to wear goggles anyway.

Except for the chlorine/pee mix in public swimming pools which makes your eyes sting it is unlikely that anything will damage your eyes.
In rivers, lakes and the sea you could possibly catch some sort of infection.

if u open them when in pool eyes may be affected by chlorine,in the sea salt water is good for eyes as long as its a clean sea

It all depends on the water conditions. Something that will keep your eyes from stinging to much is closing your eyes as you change from underwater to above water.

Wouldn't it depend on whats in the water and how clean it is?

yea i do it at the pool and afterwards my eyes are always red and sore and watery

no, it just stings a little at first due to the high salt or chlorine levels depending where you are...

angel eyez xx
i dont think it will damage them but they will be sore and red for a while after! xx

depends on the water quallity

I always end up seeing a blue ring around what I see, if this makes sense. So in my opinion it does do something to your eyes.
