As March 20th marked the first day of spring, a day everyone was looking forward to due to the long winter, we can finally see the beautiful weather ahead. However, with the sunny sky and blossoming flowers comes the dreaded seasonal allergies. Approximately 20-30% of Americans suffer from eye allergies, leaving those with itchy, red, swollen and watery eyes. Here are a few ways to diminish the symptoms:
1. Check out your areas local pollen count to know what days are higher and avoid outdoor activities on those days.
2. Wear sunglasses that wrap around your face to allow for more coverage and shading of your eyes form pollen in the air.
3. Contact lens wears should avoid wearing during high pollen counts due to pollen build up on the surface of the lens causing discomfort and contact lens intolerance. Trying Daily contact lenses can help avoid irritation by disposing of the lens each night and starting fresh in the morning.
Be ready this year to fight the allergies and schedule an appointment to see your eye doctor to find out what your options are so you can enjoy the outdoors!
