Are you suffering from itchy, watery, red eyes? Then you could have allergic conjunctivitis. Allergic conjunctivitis occurs when allergens in the air stimulate cells in the eye to release histamine. This causes the eyes to become red, watery and itchy. Traditional treatments such as antihistamines are effective at relieving the symptoms, but don’t stop the underlying problem. Newer generation medications such as Patanol and Zaditen are more effective and longer lasting. Our optometrists can prescribe a wide range of prescription and no prescription medications to help treat your eyes and keep them comfortfortable during the hayfever season. If you are having trouble this season make an appointment and we will develop a tailored treatment plan to help your eyes feel comfortable again.
