Thinking of seeing an eye doctor to deal with your spring eye allergies? Today, we’ll see if we can save you the effort by running through a few of the facts.
To begin with, what are eye allergies like? If you don’t suffer from them yourself, you might assume that a bit of sneezing is the worst of it. Not so! For those who have severe spring allergies, spring can be a months-long ordeal of itching, watery eyes.
Spring allergies are caused by the increased density of allergens in the air, like pollen, or grass seed. The difficulty lies in trying to tell apart allergies from an infection, as sometimes the symptoms are not dissimilar. If it is just allergies, there are some over-the-counter medications you can try. We’ve also got a few other tips for dealing with spring allergies and looking after your eyes.
Wearing contact lenses can complicate things, as allergens can build up on them and continue to irritate your eyes. Many people who suffer from spring allergies and use contacts switch to daily disposable contact lenses, limiting the build-up of allergens. Alternately, people often switch to glasses for the season. This can save a lot of money, as using dailies for several months can quickly rack up costs.
As we mentioned before, it can be hard to tell allergies apart from something else. If you’ve got irritated eyes, blurriness, or any other symptoms that you don’t think are connected to allergies, you may want to talk to an eye doctor.
