Eye Allergies Bothering You? Contact Your Broken Arrow Eye Doctor!
There are several triggers that may be causing your eye allergies. If your allergies mainly occur inside, it may be from pet dander, dust mites, or mold. It may be time for a good housecleaning or mold inspection, but if you have pets, keep them out of your bedroom and always wash your hands after play. If your allergies are more present when you’re outdoors, grass, tree, and weed pollens are your likely offenders. Wear sunglasses to block allergens from getting in your eyes. If the pollen count is significantly high, stay indoors if possible and keep your windows shut tight.
There are several treatments available depending on your allergies and the type of allergens affecting you. Call Dr. Ozment today for more help and stop living with eye irritation.
