The Symptoms of an Eye Allergy

Eye allergies cause several different symptoms that most people consider to be uncomfortable. Redness or a pink appearance of the white portions of the eyes is usually visible when an allergic reaction takes place. This is usually accompanied with itchiness or a gritty feeling in the eyes. It may feel as if a foreign object such as dust is in the eyes when actually there is nothing present. This discomfort causes the allergy sufferer to squint or blink in an attempt to rid the eyes of the discomfort. Tearing of the eyes may also take place.

Triggers That Cause Eye Allergies To Occur

There are many reasons why the eyes could become affected by allergies. If you suffer from seasonal allergies, such as hayfever or the increased presence of mold in the area, the eyes are sure to suffer along with other symptoms you experience. Some people are allergic to dust, mildew, pet dander and fur, grooming products, and chemical agents. If you suspect you have an allergy, it is best to avoid the trigger to the best of your ability.

How Our Holmdel Optometrist Can Help

Our optometrist has tools available to check over your eyes for symptoms you are experiencing and find treatments that work. Most people require eye drops to help reduce symptoms effectively. These can be kept on hand to use when an allergic reaction flares up. Using the wrong prescription, wearing old contact lenses, and failing to make lifestyle changes can exacerbate symptoms. Our optometrist will make recommendations on the best treatment options for your situation.
