Understanding Eye Allergies: How an Allergy Develops

An allergy is like an inappropriate response from your immune system to a substance (known as an allergen) that normally doesn't cause any sort of noxious or irritating effect on the body. For whatever reason, your immune cells recognize allergens as harmful and create antibodies against them to launch a protective attack whenever they come in contact. 

Allergies can be present from a young age or can develop later in life. It's not exactly clear why this may happen, but environment and genetics are believed to play a role. 

Common Eye Allergy Triggers & Symptoms

When an allergy affects the eyes, uncomfortable symptoms can develop, including: 

  • Redness 
  • Itching and burning
  • Clear watery discharge

It's important to realize that certain other conditions can present similarly to an eye allergy, so it's helpful to consult with an eye doctor so you can get to the root of your symptoms. As for what may be causing these eye allergy symptoms, the following triggers are among the most common we see in our patients:

  • Pollen
  • Smoke
  • Cosmetics
  • Contact lens solution
  • Pet dander
  • Dust

How Our Optometrists Can Provide Eye Allergy Relief

The most important part of our job when it comes to managing eye allergies is identifying what allergen is causing the response. Our Spring optometry team can use a variety of tests and measures to determine the underlying cause of your eye allergies and go on to address the cause and symptoms. To do this, we may recommend services and treatments such as:

  • Prescription eye drops or oral medications to reduce the allergic response and relieve inflammation, itching, redness, and swelling
  • Patient education about ways to avoid allergen exposure 
  • Prescription eyeglasses or hard-to-fit contact lenses to accommodate vision correction
