Allergies & Inflamation

Banish Eye Allergies for Clear, Comfortable Vision!

Eye allergies, also known as allergic conjunctivitis, occur when your eyes react to allergens like pollen, dust, pet dander, or mold. This reaction triggers inflammation in the conjunctiva, the thin layer covering the white of your eye and lining the inside of your eyelids.

Common Symptoms of Eye Allergies

Itching: Persistent and annoying itchiness in the eyes.

Redness: Inflamed, bloodshot eyes.

Tearing: Excessive tear production.

Swelling: Puffiness around the eyes.

Burning Sensation: Uncomfortable burning in the eyes.

Gritty Feeling: Sensation of sand or grit in the eyes.

Light Sensitivity: Discomfort in bright light.

Seasonal or Year-Round?

Seasonal Allergies: Flare-ups during specific times of the year, often spring and fall.

Perennial Allergies: Persistent symptoms throughout the year due to indoor allergens.

Effective Treatment Options

Antihistamine Eye Drops: Block histamine release, providing quick relief from itching, redness, and watering.

Mast Cell Stabilizer Eye Drops: Prevent histamine release, reducing inflammation and allergy symptoms.

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Eye Drops (NSAIDs): Alleviate itching and discomfort by reducing inflammation.

Decongestant Eye Drops: Reduce redness and swelling by constricting blood vessels (use sparingly to avoid rebound effects).

Oral Antihistamines: Relieve systemic allergy symptoms like sneezing and nasal congestion, which can also benefit the eyes.

Cold Compresses: Soothe inflammation and reduce swelling and itching.

Avoidance of Allergens: Minimize exposure by keeping windows closed during high pollen seasons, using air purifiers, and regularly cleaning bedding and upholstery.

Consult an Eye Care Professional

It’s crucial to see an eye care professional for proper diagnosis and treatment of eye allergies. Untreated allergies can lead to complications such as corneal damage and an increased risk of eye infections.
