What Are Eye Allergies?

Approximately 8 – 10 percent of people in the U.S. deal with seasonal allergies (often called hay fever) and develop irritating, unpleasant symptoms. Sneezing, congestion, and runny noses are some of the most well-known symptoms, but so are red, teary, itchy, puffy eyes. When allergic reactions affect your eyes, this is known as allergic conjunctivitis, or eye allergies. Eye allergies are very common and will strike most people with hay fever at some point. The symptoms caused by eye allergies can range from slight to intense; however, they almost always have simple treatments. At our office in Sedalia and Warsaw, MO, our teams provide numerous eye allergy treatments to reduce itching and swelling in the eyes due to allergies. Contact our team at Sedalia Eye Associates to learn more or set up your eye exam.

How Are Eye Allergies Treated?

As is the case with any allergic reaction, the best way to escape your eye allergies is to limit your exposure to the allergen, though it goes without saying that this is not always easy or even possible. People who wear contact lenses and have eye allergies can sometimes get some relief by trying daily contacts because airborne allergens will potentially build up on extended-wear lenses. In addition, many nonprescription eye drops can be purchased that are meant to relieve inflammation and itching, but often, they offer hardly any relief. For people who have been disappointed with nonprescription eye drops, you may need prescription eye drops, or you could have developed an infection rather than allergies.
