Eye Allergies

Dealing with Eye Allergies Once and for All

Treating eye allergies can involve a number of approaches, but typically, everyone eventually finds some way to lessen the problem. If you've been having a tough time finding your best treatment, meet with an eye doctor to go over available treatments to find a way to help you see more clearly despite the allergens in the air. EYECARE for You in Richboro offers eye exams and consultations for allergy treatments.

Eye Allergy Symptoms and Effects

Eye allergies are a form of conjunctivitis, so it's vital that you know the signs of an allergy so that a contagious form of the condition doesn’t go untreated. Eye problems caused by allergens typically include watering and itching eyes, redness, blurriness, and excess mucus production. Removing yourself from a place with a lot of allergens and gently flushing your eyes with water often creates fast improvement. If you have green or dark yellow matter in your eyes, if your eyes hurt, you can't see, or if you've recently had a cold, you may be dealing with bacterial or viral conjunctivitis instead of an allergy.

Eye Allergy Treatments

Treatments depend on the allergen and your exposure. Cat allergies, for example, may respond to allergy shots plus stricter and more frequent cleaning of your home. Pollen allergies can respond to antihistamines and taking care to keep pollen out of your home as much as possible. Eyelid wipes may also help as they can remove allergens that are sticking to your eyelids and possibly adding to the irritation. Eye drops do help many, but you should discuss which type is most appropriate for your particular symptoms.
