There is no doubt that when you have allergies, wherever they may strike, and whatever their origin is, that the result is likely to be frustration, discomfort, and many times downright misery. Your symptoms can range from red eyes, itchiness, and tearing to the inclusion of nasal indications, which may include a runny nose and sneezing. To say it’s unpleasant would be an understatement. But you don’t have to suffer with eye allergies, because we at Lens Lab Express have help to offer.
The root cause of your eye allergies are the same as with nasal or skin allergies. Your body has identified something it considers a threat. The symptoms you experience are your body’s way of defending itself. Our Rochdale Village optometrist is your specialist in terms of diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment. What spurs the reaction can vary, but at this time of the year pollen is a common reason. And because of that, we recommend that you keep your windows closed when the pollen count is high. Use air-conditioning instead if it’s too warm and you need ventilation. Dust is also a common reason for eye allergies, as are bedding materials. You can help yourself by using water of at least 130 degrees to wash your sheets, blankets, pillow cases, etc. If your mattress is old, it may be a good idea to replace it. And there are allergen resistant ones, as well as allergen resistant bedding. Our Rochdale Village optometrist will also recommend the appropriate medication, which may mean prescribing a stronger version of what you can get on your store shelf.
Take action when eye allergies strike. All you have to do is contact our office and we will set up a prompt appointment for you to come in and see our Rochdale Village optometrist. The quicker you reach out to us, the quicker you will get the relief you deserve.
