Allergy Eyes? 8 Tips To Help This Spring

Ah yes, spring is in the air and what a relief it is. It has been a brutal winter for many across the country. For most of us, the beginning of spring brings happy thoughts of warm weather, flowers, bike rides and picnics at the park.  Sadly if you are someone who suffers from allergies the first signs of spring can remind you of sneezing, coughing, and itchy, watery eyes that you go through every spring.

Eye Allergy - 8 Tips For Contact UsersIf you suffer from an eye allergy, also called allergic conjunctivitis, springtime can make your life miserable. Eye allergies is a reaction to indoor and outdoor allergens which include dust mites, pet dander, mold, grass and pollen that get in the eyes and cause inflammation of the tissue that lines the eyelid. Once inflamed, the eye can be very painful for extended periods of time.

Eye allergies can affect anyone but it is particularly hard on contact lens wearers. Today people use extended wear contacts that require less frequent cleaning and replacement. Not only can the allergens inflame the eyelid they get under the contacts making matters even worse.

To effectively treat and relieve the symptoms caused by eye allergies, you really need to see your optometrist. They usually will prescribe soothing medicated eye drops or rinses to remove the allergens. Many who try the DIY route will treat their symptoms with an over-the-counter antihistamine. The problem is antihistamines can help with the running noses and sneezing but they can make eye allergy symptoms worse by reducing the moisture in the eyes.

If you have problems with allergies and your eyes then try some of these tips. If you visit your doctor we bet they will suggest several them because they work.

  • Reduce the amount of time you were contact lens (your glasses don’t look bad)
  • Switch to daily disposable contact lenses
  • Use eye drops (ask doctor first)
  • Clean contacts at least daily
  • Don’t rub your eyes
  • Wash hands before you remove or put in contacts
  • Avoid wearing eye makeup
  • Do not share contact lens cases

We know first hand that you can not completely avoid eye problems during the spring but you can do some or all of the things we mentioned above to make this spring a bit better.

Wishing you the best of health
