If you have allergies, you know how annoying the symptoms can be. When the allergies affect your eyes, it can be even more bothersome. If you’re experiencing eye allergy type symptoms that are persistent, you should be evaluated by a Tortugas eye specialist like ours at Your Eyecare & Contact Lens/Johnson.
Even though eye allergies don’t pose a serious threat to your eyesight, the symptoms can be quite annoying. If home remedies don’t work, you should book an appointment with our Tortugas eye specialist at Your Eyecare & Contact Lens/Johnson. Some eye allergy symptoms include but are not limited to: itchy eyes, red eyes and irritated eyes. The first step in dealing with any type of allergy is to determine the cause of the allergen and then to try to avoid it. If you’ve never had allergies before or if your allergies are affecting more than just your eyes, you may need to go to an allergist to find out what you’re allergic to. The professional allergist can then prescribe the appropriate treatment for your allergies. However, if you’re experiencing allergy type symptoms that are only affecting your eyes you should make an appointment with a dry eye specialist to be evaluated. There are other eye diseases and conditions, such as conjunctivitis, for example that may present with allergy type symptoms. In order to be properly treated, you first will need to see an eye care professional like ours at Your Eyecare & Contact Lens/Johnson in order to get properly diagnosed. The eye care professional will evaluate you to determine the root cause of the problem so he can recommend the right course of treatment for you. If your eye doctor determines that your eye condition is allergy related there are many possible treatment options he can use. Your specific treatment regimen will be based on your diagnosis, the severity of your condition and other factors as determined by your doctor.
