Itchy eyes driving you nuts?
Spring is here and that’s good news, except for allergy sufferers. A common woe for those affected is the relentless itchiness that takes over their eyes, but if that’s you, we have good news. Help is at hand.
Oh happy days – goodbye winter woollies and hello light and bright springtime clothes. For most of us, the arrival of warmer weather brings a sigh of relief but, for some, it means red and itchy peepers that are constantly teary, scratchy and super sore1. It’s. Not. Fun. At. All.
And it’s not just the havoc it plays with your make-up and your face. Itchy eyes can leave you feeling tired, irritable and generally out of sorts2.
First, how do you know you’re experiencing ‘allergy eyes’?
It’s easy to mistake allergy eye symptoms for general eye irritation, but there are some tell-tale signs that set them apart.
If you experience red, watery eyes, persistent itching and occasional puffiness, it’s likely allergies2 are the culprit.
Sometimes, the sensation you’re feeling might resemble having sand in your eyes, and you find yourself frequently rubbing them to get relief.
If you’re suffering from seasonal eye allergy, identifying your symptoms is the first step in addressing the issue.
Common Allergy Eye Triggers
Different environmental factors can trigger allergy eyes3, and these vary depending on the individual.
Pollen from blooming flowers, grass, and trees is a notorious allergen during the spring season.
Other triggers include dust mites, pet dander, mould spores, and even indoor irritants such as smoke and perfume.
Identifying your specific triggers can aid in managing your symptoms effectively.
When allergy eye symptoms strike, finding swift and effective relief becomes paramount.
