Allergic conjunctivitis caused by eye allergies is very common. Eye allergies, like other types, can be triggered by allergens including pollen, animal dander and dust mites.

The most common symptom of allergic conjunctivitis is itchy eyes, the eyes may also be teary and red. In some cases, cold-like symptoms may be present. Anti-allergy eye drops containing antihistamines to control allergic reactions can be used to relieve the symptoms. These eye drops are available both over the counter and by prescription. If the eye symptoms are accompanied by cold-like symptoms, antihistamine tablets may be necessary.

Avoiding the allergen is also important in the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis, so wear sunglasses when you’re outside to reduce your exposure. Allergic conjunctivitis can be seasonal or it can be present all year-round, depending on what’s causing the reaction.
