Top 3 Ways to Soothe Seasonal Allergies
As winter shifts to warmer temperatures, and flowers, grasses and trees begin to bloom, these changes can take a toll on your eyes if you suffer from seasonal allergies. This time of year is marked by an increase in pollen and allergens in the air, resulting in symptoms for allergy sufferers.
What are allergies? According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, an allergy occurs when the body’s immune system sees a substance as harmful and overreacts to it. The substances that cause allergic reactions are called allergens. When someone has allergies, their immune system responds, resulting in an allergic reaction.
What can you do when you are suffering from eye allergies? By making some minor changes to your environment and activities, you can significantly reduce the amount of allergens you come in contact with, and lessen the symptoms you’re experiencing.
If allergy symptoms are prolonged or worsen, consult with your eye doctor to determine the best course of action.
