8 tips for eye allergy sufferers
Get a timely start. See your eye specialist before allergy season begins to learn how to lessen your sensitivity to allergens.
Try to limit or avoid your exposure to the key causes of your eye allergies. In the summer and spring, pollen from grasses and trees are the general suspects. In late summer and fall, ragweed pollen is the biggest criminal. The common indoor allergens during winter are pet dander, mold, mites and dust.
Safeguard your eyes from allergens in the air outdoors by wearing wraparound-style sunglasses.
Do not rub your eyes if they itch! More histamine is released by rubbing your eyes and worsens your allergy symptoms.
To wash airborne allergens from your eyes use a good deal of artificial tears. Ask your eye specialist which brands are best for you.
To reduce the build-up of allergens on your lenses. Switch to daily disposable lenses or cut down your contact lens wear.
Shower before you hit the sack and gently clean your eyelids to discard any pollen that could cause irritation while you sleep.
Consider buying an air purifier for your home, and buy an allergen-trapping filter for your cooling / heating system.
Also, take a look at today's pollen count map to check your risk of exposure to airborne allergens outdoors.
