Spring Allergies are Here!


Tips to Help with Your Eye Allergies

Try to avoid or limit your exposure to the primary causes of your eye allergies. In the spring and summer, pollen from trees and grasses are the usual suspects. Ragweed pollen is the biggest culprit in late summer and fall. Mold, dust mites and pet dander are common indoor cause of your allergies during winter. “Snow Mold” found under then snow when it melts can also cause spring allergens. Protect your eyes from airborne allergens outdoors by wearing wraparound-style sunglasses. Don’t rub your eyes if they itch! Excessive rubbing (although it feels great!) only increases the inflammation and worsens the allergic reaction. Cut down your contact lens wear or switch to daily disposable lenses to reduce the buildup of allergens on your lenses. Wash your face and eyelids to remove allergens after exposure. Consider purchasing an air purifier for your home, and purchase a hypoallergenic filter for your heating/cooling system.
