COMMON EYE ALLERGIES AND TREATMENT OPTIONS
Eye allergies can be caused by a number of factors, ranging from lifestyle habits to environmental factors and even genetics. Some common examples of factors that can cause eye allergies to include:
dust and pollen
Most people who suffer from eye allergies will have noticeable symptoms when allergens are present. These symptoms can vary from one person to the next, but they typically include eyes that are red and/or itchy, excessively water, or generally irritated. In some cases, eye allergy symptoms may become severe enough to affect your vision.
It is also not uncommon for eye allergy symptoms to arise on a seasonal basis, especially for those who are allergic to things like dust, pollen, and pet dander here in Ashburn.
