About Eye Allergies

Around 50 million U.S. adults and children suffer from seasonal allergies (commonly called hay fever) and endure annoying or unpleasant symptoms. Often, if you have seasonal allergies, you experience other well-known symptoms, like sneezing, congestion, and runny noses. However, you may also suffer from red, watery, burning, or puffy eyes. When allergens affect your eyes, the result is allergic conjunctivitis. Also known as ocular allergies, many patients have eye allergies, which occur in conjunction with other seasonal allergies. The discomfort you feel with ocular allergies can range from mild to severe, but they usually have convenient treatment options. At our eye care facility, our Lake Worth, FL eye doctors offer multiple eye allergy treatments to reduce itching and swelling. Located near Delray Beach and Lake Worth, FL, please get in touch with our South Florida eye center team at Palm Beach Eye Center to hear more or schedule a consultation.

What is the best treatment for eye allergies?

Normally, eye allergies happen because of tree pollen, mildew, dust mites, pet dander, fragrances, cigarettes, or skin care products. Although allergies happen mostly for these reasons, our ophthalmologists will complete a thorough eye exam to ensure your symptoms are not caused by something else and develop a treatment plan. In some cases, patients may need to see an allergist who can determine their particular allergy trigger. Impacting both the internal structures of your eye and eyelids, the most well-known symptoms of eye allergies include:

  • Watery eyes
  • Irritated
  • Puffy
  • Red eyes
  • Itchiness
  • Inflammation
  • Puffiness
  • Soreness
  • Prickling
  • Light sensitivity

Once we assess your eyes, symptoms, and medical history, we can determine the underlying reason and offer solutions for your needs. To alleviate uncomfortable side effects, you may need prescription or nonprescription eye drops or different contact lenses, like daily wear ones. Of course, if possible, we recommend avoiding the allergen, but sometimes, that's not possible.
