Has your sneezing, sniffling, and nasal congestion started yet? Seasonal allergies can also affect the eyes, causing redness, itching, burning, watery eyes, and swollen eyelids.  The good news is, there are treatments that can help with allergy symptoms that are affecting your eyes.

Eye allergies, also called ocular allergies or allergic conjunctivitis, affect one in five Americans.  Though the symptoms they cause can be annoying….not to mention unbecoming…they pose little threat to your eyesight, other than temporary blurriness.  However, red, itchy, burning, or puffy eyes can also be caused by infections and other conditions which may threaten your vision.  So, if you are experiencing discomfort with your eyes, please see your eye doctor or visit us here at Ashbaker Vision Clinic to have your symptoms diagnosed and treated.
