About Eye Allergies

Every year, 50 million U.S. adults and children deal with seasonal allergies (commonly referred to as hay fever) and endure annoying, sometimes painful symptoms. Sneezing, congestion, and itchy noses are well-known symptoms, but so are bloodshot, watery, itchy, and puffy eyes. When allergens irritate your eyes, you have allergic conjunctivitis, also known as ocular or eye allergies. Eye allergies are prevalent and will impact most patients at some point. The symptoms caused by ocular allergies can range from mild to intense, but they usually have convenient treatment options. At Bentz Eye Center in West Palm Beach, FL, our board-certified ophthalmologists have experience treating eye allergies to reduce your symptoms. Please reach out to our team at Bentz Eye Center to learn more or schedule your eye exam.

What to expect with eye allergies

Besides sneezing, sniffling, and an itchy nose, most people who have hay fever tend to also suffer from symptoms that affect their eyes. The most familiar symptoms of eye allergies include watery, irritated, red, and swollen eyes that may ache or feel sensitive to light. Usually, patients with eye allergies have trouble with tree pollen, mildew, dust mites, animal dander, tobacco smoke, beauty products, or perfumes.

Though eye allergies are usually not dangerous, their symptoms sometimes mimic other types of more severe conditions. Because of this, we will complete an eye evaluation to determine the underlying cause. If we do diagnose you with eye allergies, we can provide prescription eye drops or other solutions. Additionally, if you wear contacts, our team can reduce uncomfortable symptoms by switching you to disposable daily options.
