Ocular Allergies

Do you have eye allergies?

Eye allergy triggers such as pollen, pet dander, dust mites, cigarette smoke and even perfume can cause eye irritation that ultimately leads to dry eye symptoms. You can try to minimize ocular allergies by making changes to your daily activities such as:

  • Stay indoors with windows closed when pollen counts are high
  • Avoid touching/rubbing your eyes
  • Wash your hands after touching animals
  • Use bedding covers to prevent dust mites
  • Avoid smoking or being exposed to second hand smoke

Over-the-counter eye drops, antihistamines and decongestants may be sufficient to help control ocular allergies. If your symptoms are persistent, prescription medication may be necessary.
