Holi color and Gulal can damage the skin as well as the eyes. If Holi color goes into the eyes, then it starts burning. There may be blindness for some time or even blindness forever. Particles of dry colors can penetrate directly into the eye causing problems. Water guns and water balloons can also hurt the eyes. Synthetic dyes contain lead-like metals, which can cause many problems such as eye allergies, conjunctivitis, chemical burns, corneal abrasion, or blunt eye injuries.
