Target Your Itchy Eyes

Itchy eyes caused by allergies can drive you up the wall. Allergies commonly affect the eyes, nose, and can even cause headaches. Allergies can cause your eyes to feel itchy, dry or watery, depending on your body and its particular chemistry.  

How Do Allergies Affect My Eyes?

As your body reacts to seasonal allergies, your eyes may become inflamed. This inflammation can manifest as itchiness, redness, or both. You may notice your eyes streaming or becoming very dry.  

Eye Drop Treatments

If your itchy eyes are indeed caused by allergies, there are a number of over-the-counter medications that may be effective in treating the problem. A good antihistamine or decongestant can be a wonderful tonic for what ails you.

Visit a healthcare professional if you are bothered by itchy eyes. Your physician will be able to help determine the cause of your itchy eyes and then prescribe or recommend the right treatment for you. There are quite a few good options available (including reducing exposure with allergy goggles), so there is no reason to suffer from this symptom of seasonal allergies.
