Itchy eyes may mean allergies

Allergy season is now here, and with all of the dust and pollen in the air red, itchy, irritated eyes may be a sign that you have an allergic eye condition. Contact lens wearers are particularly prone to eye allergy problems because allergens entering the eye can cling to the lens instead of being washed out. Sometimes switching to a different type of contact lens or contact lens material is beneficial. Also, many new over-the-counter and prescription eye drops are now available to help relieve those symptoms for contact lens wearers and non-contact lens wearers. If you think you are suffering from allergic eye problems, ask us how we can help you.
