Allergens are everywhere, in the form of dust, chemicals, animals, plants, and other endless lists of indoor and outdoor irritants. If your eyes are red, itch, burn, and tear, it’s possible you suffer from allergic conjunctivitis, or eye allergies. You may notice eye allergies occur by themselves, or at the same time as other allergy symptoms, including a stuffy nose, sneezing, and coughing.
Although eye allergies may be uncomfortable and annoying, they’re not a serious threat to your vision. However, if irritated eyes constantly disrupt your day, it can begin to affect your quality of life. At Dimond Vision Clinic, we can treat your eye allergies and restore your comfort by alleviating the symptoms causing you distress.
Though you can avoid some allergens, such as cats or dogs, others are just impossible to remove from your environment, such as dust and pollen. If you regularly suffer from red, watery, itchy eyes, contact our office. After a thorough examination, we can help you determine the best course of action to treat your eye allergies for optimal eye health.
