Many of us battle eye allergies and it can be a frustrating problem for some. Eye allergies, or allergic conjunctivitis, present themselves in the form of itchy or red eyes and tearing or burning eyes. We often think of treating nasal allergies but ignore our eye allergies.

There are many different allergy triggers, like pollen, grass, pet dander, mold or dust mites. Even cigarette smoke or diesel exhaust can trigger eye allergies. So, when it comes to treating your eye allergies, what can you do?

Tips for managing your eye allergies
  • Keep your windows closed during high pollen periods
  • Use air conditioning in your home and car
  • Wear glasses or sunglasses outdoors to help protect your eyes
  • Use “mite-proof” bedding to help limit exposure to dust mites
  • Wash your hands after petting an animal
  • Use artificial tears, decongestant eye drops and oral antihistamines

If these tips are not able to control your eye allergies, it may be time to see an allergist for a prescription medication. If you have more questions about maintaining your health, contact Marion’s eye doctor. Our team would be happy to speak with you.
