Eye Allergies

An allergy is an overreaction of the immune system by normally harmless subjects called allergens. Allergies come in a variety of forms. The most common allergens are pollen, dust mites, pet dander, insect venom, and food. Most people will suffer from at least one allergic reaction at some point in their life. Some people may experience hives or rashes from various foods or plants, sneezing from dust or pollen, and itchy eyes from dander. Of course, triggers and symptoms are different for everyone.

Eye allergy symptoms may include:

  • Red, watery, itchy eyes
  • Running or stuffy nose
  • Sneezing
  • Sinus pressure
  • Sore throat
  • Coughing
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest tightening
  • Asthma attack (in severe cases)

Don’t suffer through the discomfort! If you are one of the 30% of adults, or if your child is one of the 40% of children who suffer from allergies please schedule an appointment with Dr. Lambaria. We can talk about avoiding triggers, testing, how to get possible relief, and treatment options. Allergies can disrupt your quality of life and make it impossible to do activities you usually love.
