Relieving eye allergies
There are a number of steps you can take to get relief.
- Remove your contact lenses
Contact lenses can accumulate airborne allergens. You could consider switching to disposable daily lenses if your allergy occurs at one time of the year. Disposable lenses avoid the build-up of allergens and other debris on the lens surface.
If your allergy reaction continues, stop wearing your contacts until your symptoms have gone.
- Eye Drops
These drops are designed to relieve red, itchy and sore eyes.
- Cold Compress
A simple, home remedy that can soothe your eyes and provide quick relief.
If your eyes are causing you problems, or discomfort speak to your optometrist about how they can help you. Your optometrist will assess and diagnose your eye allergy and discuss with you how you can treat your symptoms.
