  • 5 Tips for Itchy Eyes this Allergy Season

      Clean and stay indoors. Try avoiding the pollen and allergens that are causing your eyes to itch. Allergies can come from many sources: soaps, mold, mildew, and pollen. Try to find the source of your allergies. Check weather sites like weather.com for pollen counts. Over the counter allergy medicine. Claritin and other antihistamines are a great way not only to deal with that sneezy runny nose but also to getting rid of those itchy eyes. Careful though sometimes they can cause more dryness which leads us to the next tip. Avoid eye drops like Visine and use artificial tears instead. Many eye drops contain tetrahydrozoline hydrochloride which constricts blood vessels to reduce red eye which can give temporary relief but actually cause red eye after prolonged use. Using an artificial tear that mimics a person’s natural tears can wash allergens away from the eyes and help with dry and itchiness. Mark your calendar. You may find your allergies act up at the same time every year. Be prepared and start using your allergy medicine in advance or spending little less time outdoors to avoid the pollen. See your local optometrist. You may find out your red itchy eyes are actually an eye infection. We can help you find other solutions like trying daily contacts and prescription medications. Dr. Jamison has more than 10 years’ experience in eye care and opened her eye clinic in Eden Prairie MN to give patients a more personal eye care experience.  Our goals is to help our patients See Look and Feel Great. Our ‘All Inclusive’ Eye Exam is focused on your long term health and giving you the best vision options possible.
