The warmer weather is a welcomed change after a winter with record snowfall. Unfortunately for individuals with allergies this is going to be a spring full of bloom and red itchy eyes. I suffer from bad allergies myself and I truly understand how uncomfortable allergies can be. The most common ocular allergies symptoms include redness, itchy eyes, watering, and foreign body sensation. Fortunately there are great over the counter eye drop medications for allergies such as Zaditor, Pataday, Bepreve, and any drops that list eye itch relief. Oral allergy medication and nasal sprays are great options in addition to eye drops. If over the counter treatment didn’t help relieve your allergy symptoms, please call our office at 928-779-7000 and set up an appointment.
