Seasonal allergies are common, with exposure to allergens including ragweed, grass and pollen leading to puffy, red, burning, watery and itchy eyes. Other symptoms of allergic reactions include coughing, nasal congestion and sneezing. Those who deal with this condition can find life very uncomfortable at certain times of year and/or when they come into contact with an irritant.
Your Optometrist or general practitioner might prescribe treatment options such as antihistamines, allergy shots and over-the-counter eye drops. In addition, an eye doctor can recommend some specific treatment options such as pharmaceutical prescribed eye drops and compresses. These can help lessen or eliminate the symptoms and ease overall wellbeing for those who regularly suffer from seasonal allergies.
