We are all excited about the warmer weather and the beauty that spring offers. However, as this season arrives, many of us also suffer from allergies!
Eye allergies, also known as allergic conjunctivitis, can occur at any time of the year and can be due to environmental factors or seasonal changes. Seasonal allergies most commonly occur during the spring and fall seasons, often due to allergens such as pollen and ragweed.
Some common signs and symptoms of eye allergies include itchy, red, watery eyes, and swollen eyelids. In addition, allergies can cause discomfort in contact lens wearers and worsen dry eye syndrome. There are treatment options available to help manage your symptoms and to get you through allergy season without too much trouble.
If you think you may be suffering from allergies, or have any questions, call our office today to schedule an appointment.
