WHAT ARE Eye Allergies?

Around 50 million Americans are affected by seasonal allergies (commonly called hay fever) and develop frustrating, unpleasant symptoms. Sneezing, congestion, and runny noses are familiar symptoms, but so are inflamed, teary, and puffy eyes. When allergic reactions irritate your eyes, this is known as allergic conjunctivitis, also known as eye allergies. Eye allergies are quite common and will happen to the majority of patients with seasonal allergies sooner or later. The symptoms caused by eye allergies can be slight to severe, but they almost always have easy treatments. At our office in Birmingham, AL, our team provides multiple eye allergy treatments to reduce your irritation. Call us at inVision Ophthalmology Birmingham to find out more or plan your consultation.

Symptoms of EYE ALLERGIES

On top of sneezing, sniffling, and an itchy nose, most people with common allergies also deal with discomfort in their eyes. The most well-known symptoms of eye allergies are watery, itchy, inflamed eyes. For most people, the symptoms associated with eye allergies also occur with the eyelids, causing them to become itchy, puffy, and inflamed as well. These symptoms often produce a strong need to rub or scratch the eyes, but giving in will just make the symptoms more intense. People whose ocular allergies are quite bad can experience burning sensations, aching eyes, and in some cases, even light sensitivity.
