Yellow dust storms have the most detrimental effect on your eyes. The sand can incite allergies which lead to itchiness, tears, and makes your eyes become bloodshot.

For those who wear contact lenses, make sure to change to glasses or sunglasses and avoid using saline water when cleaning out your eyes.

Children or the elderly who have trouble breathing due to asthma are more vulnerable to yellow sand. Yellow sand can be harmful even in indoors, so a humidifier or air fresheners are recommended.
