Allergy season is upon us once again and it is even more important now to understand symptoms and seek treatment. In the months of August and September, we see a lot of red, itchy and teary eyes. This happens because it’s very dusty during these months, and there’s a lot of pollen in the air, which tends to cause allergic conjunctivitis (red, itchy, teary eyes). Contact lens wearers may experience some discomfort during these months. It is very important for you to consult when you experience these symptoms so you can get the appropriate treatment. This will ensure that you avoid constantly touching or rubbing your eyes. Contact us for an appointment if you need to get your eyes examined.
Remember, keep your hands clean, sanitize your computer, tablet, and phone as well.
