What Causes Eye Allergies?
Eye allergies are caused by allergens that your body mistakes as foreign invaders. Eye allergy symptoms include:
- Blurry vision
- Itchy eyes
- Watery eyes
- Burning eyes
- Feeling of debris in the eyes
These eye allergies can be made worse as the seasons progress, and they can be impacted by the presence of more allergens in the air. These allergens can include anything from dust, to pollen, pet danger, mold, or even household cleaners.
If your eye allergies are getting worse and don't seem to be getting any better with allergy medicine, it's best to visit an optometrist for help to alleviate your symptoms.
How Can an Optometrist Improve My Seasonal Allergies?
Our optometrist will conduct an eye exam to ensure your symptoms are due to season allergies and not other symptoms from an eye infection or blepharitis. They will also determine the best treatment for your eye allergies. Mostly, lifestyle changes are recommended to alleviate your symptoms. This can include adding a daily allergy medication or taking prescribed eyedrops from our eye doctor.
Our optometrist can also help conduct follow-up care to ensure any treatment is able to help you find relief from your eye allergies. If your optometrist determines that your symptoms are due to an eye infection, we will also conduct care for this such as prescribing antibiotics.
