Itchy Eyes

Author: Christine Burris Wisecarver, O.D., See Clearly Vision

It’s that time of year again! Allergy season is underway, and many patients are starting to come in complaining of itchy, red, watery eyes, swollen lids, and nasal congestion.

Allergies are an over-response of patient’s immune system to what should be a benign aspect in the environment. Treatment of allergies includes: avoidance; washing hands, hair, and clothes that may have allergens; artificial tears or saline nasal spray to flush allergens; antihistamines; mast cell stabilizers; and steroids. If you are suffering from ocular allergies, make an appointment today. It is always easier to prevent an allergy than try to treat it when it is out of control.

Drs. Wisecarver and Rajpal recently published an article on Allergic Conjunctivitis that was the featured Cover Story for the March 2013 issue of Advanced Ocular Care. For more information on allergies as they pertain to the eye, you may click here to read their article.
