Get Help For Eye Allergies
It’s that time of year again when allergies cause watery, itchy, uncomfortable eyes! Although allergies can cause problems during any season of the year, many people are most symptomatic during spring and summer. At Total Eyecare in Elko, our doctors can properly diagnose your condition and provide you with an individualized treatment plan.
What Causes Eye Allergies?
Eye allergies occur when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance that, under normal conditions, is harmless. Pollen, a common allergen, doesn’t actually harm the human body, but your immune system may react as if it were a potential hazard. This causes the unpleasant symptoms associated with allergies. The redness, itching, watery eyes, and swelling are all common signs of allergies.
Eye Doctors Treat Allergies
After confirming that allergies are the true source of your symptoms (ruling out other potentially serious eye conditions), our eye doctors will work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. While over-the-counter medications can be helpful, they are often not enough. Our optometrist will determine which prescription medications will work best to get you feeling better and seeing clearly again.
