Eye Allergies: Some Basic Information

One very common and widespread affliction of Americans are eye allergies; there are numerous and documented complaints of allergic effects that involve eyes. Severe eye allergies can be a very bothersome and extremely frustrating experience to go through as it calls for more than a few consultations and visits to a qualified practitioner. People who suffer from this type of allergy reaction are at risk because it poses a serious threat to the eyesight.

The conjunctiva is the area of the eye that exhibits the most common reaction, allergic conjunctivitis, of eye allergies; it is a clear layer of skin overlying the eyes. Allergic conjunctivitis has two common subtypes – seasonal allergic conjunctivitis (SAC) and perennial allergic conjunctivitis (PAC). Both types of reactions are triggered by an individuals hypersensitivity to triggers of eye allergies like pollen, grass, weeds, dust, and pet dander. As the names suggest, allergic problems do not last long in SAC, but lasts throughout the year in PAC.

Other symptoms normally indicative of eye allergies are redness of the eyes, teariness, a burning sensation in the eye, blurriness of vision, and excessive eye protein matter and/or mucus production.

If you are suffering from eye allergies and you can distinguish and avoid the substance you are sensitive to, you can improve your conditions without the need for medical treatment. On the other hand, if you are unable to identify or avoid the allergens, the best option is to visit an allergist or ophthalmologist to have your condition evaluated and treated. If you have SAC, you are better off since you can consult your doctor prior to the arrival of the season during which you suffer from eye allergies so that pre-emptive treatment can start even before the symptoms manifest themselves. However, if you have PAC, routine monitoring appointments with your doctor may be necessary to regularly observe your eye allergies condition.

In most cases, your allergist or ophthalmologist can diagnose eye allergies from your complaints alone.

Eye examinations are a part of the clinical assessment procedure to rule out other problem sources and conditions. Close inspection of the eyes with special instruments is necessary since the ophthalmologist will have to check for dilated blood vessels, conjunctival and eyelid inflammation, all of which are positive indicators of allergic reaction. Very rarely, a scraping of the conjunctiva may be performed to check for eosinophils.

Aside from medical treatment of eye allergies, prevention and avoidance is the best way to fight off allergens. However, if the problem persists despite avoidance and other self-care methodologies, medical treatment is the only other recourse. You can use over-the-counter medications such as allergy eye drops and oral antihistamines on recommendation of your physician for mild eye allergies. There are also numerous prescription eye drops that are widely available to help alleviate your suffering from eye allergies.
