Suffering from itchy, red, irritated eyes? These frustrating symptoms can go hand in hand with the changing of the seasons. There are many over-the-counter allergy eye drops to choose from, but the one we often recommend is Pataday. This antihistamine eye drop has required a prescription in the past but is now available over the counter.
If you are a contact lens wearer these symptoms can sometimes be amplified as the allergens tend to stick to the surface of the contact lens. Switching into a daily disposable modality can be very helpful in alleviating these symptoms. Some cases are more severe and need an evaluation in office. We are here to help, so contact us if you are struggling with eye allergies.
