That faint golden haze that coats every surface in the yard or the park is a sure sign that spring allergy season is coming right “atchoo.” Pollen can be brutal on the eyes, but you don’t have to let the pesky yellow dusting spoil your time outdoors.
After a year of masks, no one wants to crawl inside a plastic bubble to avoid seasonal allergies, just when the weather is starting to get good! So, while we still encourage you to stop and smell the roses, we also recommend that you try these five strategies to keep allergens from getting the upper hand this spring:
If you find yourself struggling to keep clear eyes during the sneezy season, schedule an eye exam so your eye doctor can help you address irritation so you can enjoy the outdoors. There are a number of treatments that can relieve allergy symptoms and the dry eye that comes with them (including vision correction, which helps people avoid the contacts altogether!)
With a bit of forethought and prevention, you’ll sail through spring and summer and enjoy every stunning sight along the way.
Missouri Eye Institute has given thousands of patients freedom from glasses and contacts through LASIK and LASIK alternatives. If you would like to find out if you’re a candidate for vision correction, take our short self-test or make an appointment for a thorough eye exam by calling (800) 383-3831.Tags: Allergy Eyes, Itchy Eyes
