Eyes allergies can present as allergic conjunctivitis, which is an inflammation of the eyes due to an exaggerated response of our immune system to common allergens. It can present together with Allergic Rhinitis and Sinusitis (hay fever).Common symptoms include itchy, watery eyes and in more severe cases can present with pain, redness and swelling.
Our allergists will help you by diagnosing the nature of the conjunctivitis and by treating these allergies. Avoiding triggers, prescribing medications and providing allergy desensitization or “allergy shots” are parts of our comprehensive treatment plan. Common indoor allergens include dust mites, molds and animal dander while pollens are the main outdoor ones.
