Facts About Eye Allergy

Allergies can affect the eyes too, causing it to turn red, itchy, burning, and watery eyes and swollen eyelids. It is caused by a glitch in the body’s immune system. Typically, both eyes are affected by an allergic reaction.


Here are some allergy assistance you can do:

Artificial tears. It moisten the eyes and helps to dilute accumulated allergens. It is also a way to prevent the allergens from sticking to the conjunctiva.

Antihistamine eyedrops. They work by blocking histamine receptors in the conjunctiva.

Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs (NSAIDS). They reduce redness and swelling, making them useful in treating itchy eyes.

Other Tips:

Sudden allergic reactions and swollen eyes can be assisted by cold compress.
After using eyedrops, keep them refrigerated to soothe the application.

. Wear sunglasses when outdoors.
. Wash your hands after petting any animal.

If you are suffering from Eye Allergy then try to minimize your exposure to allergens. I suggest you take your antihistamine and use allergy eye drops as needed.
