Eye allergies are a condition when the eyes react to an irritant or allergen, making them red, itchy, tearful and swollen.
Eye allergies develop when the body’s immune system becomes sensitized and overreacts to something in the environment that typically causes no problem in most people.
EYE ALLERGY TRIGGERS
Outdoor allergens, such as ▪︎Pollens from grass, trees and weeds
▪︎Indoor allergens, such as pet dander, dust mites and mold
▪︎Irritants, such as cigarette smoke, perfume and diesel exhaust
EYE ALLERGY SYMPTOMS
▪︎Clear, watery discharge
EYE ALLERGY MANAGEMENT AND TREATMENT
Avoid triggers by making changes to your home and your routine.
▪︎Keep windows closed during high pollen periods
▪︎Wear glasses or sunglasses when outdoors to keep pollen out of your eyes.
▪︎Use “mite-proof” bedding covers to limit exposure to dust mites
▪︎Wash your hands after petting any animal.
Eye allergies can happen alone or with nasal allergies and an allergic skin condition called eczema. The only way to know for sure if it’s an allergy is to see your doctor.
