Allergies are very common. Around 22 million people in the United States alone suffer from seasonal allergies that cause itchy, swollen, red eyes. The most common type of allergic eye problem is hay fever, also known as seasonal allergic conjunctivitis. These are caused by pollen in the air that affects your eyes. At Boston Vision, we can help to diagnose and start treatment for your allergies so that you can go on living your life uninterrupted.
Symptoms of Allergic Conjunctivitis:
- Red, swollen eyes
- Itchy eyes
- Burning or tearing of the eyes
- Light sensitivity
Treatment for Allergies
Taking antihistamines and decongestants are good to soothe irritated eyes and help with a stuffy nose. Also, using a cold compress can help to decrease any swelling or itching. If the allergy symptoms are severe, patients can use eye drops to help wash out the allergens from the eyes.
