Eye Allergies

We recommend visiting Medical Vision Institute if you are struggling with allergy symptoms of the eye, especially for the first time.

Eye allergies stem from a wide array of causes, including environmental factors and even as a response to some medications and eye drops. Visiting MVI can help you prevent or treat this common condition in order to provide relief of your eye irritation faster and more smoothly. We even offer in-house allergy testing that may assist in discovering the cause of your allergies and help you learn what elements to avoid in order to proactively discourage this uncomfortable, inconvenient, and often chronic condition.

Talking to Dr. Dudee will be beneficial if it turns out that your lifestyle adjustments and OTC medications just won’t provide your eyes with relief. In these cases, we may prescribe stronger medicines to help and often even provide advice on other conditions you may have that exacerbate allergy symptoms

Common Symptoms of Eye Allergies

  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Burning Eyes
  • Watery Eyes
  • Swollen Eyelids

Allergies affect as many as 50 million Americans, with itchy, irritated eyes being a very common complaint. Our eyes are constantly being exposed to airborne allergens such as dust, animal dander, pollen, and mold. Because there are so many different causes of allergies, you may not be able to treat the symptoms sufficiently without having an eye exam with your doctor.


Contact Dermatitis

Contact Dermatitis is an allergic reaction of the eyes and eyelids that occurs from direct contact with an allergen. Common culprits include; fragrances and dyes in detergents, make-up, moisturizers, and preservatives in eye drops.


Allergic Conjunctivitis

Allergic Conjunctivitis occurs when an allergic reaction affects the clear layer of tissue that covers the eye, called the conjunctiva. Symptoms can include itching, burning, redness, watering, eyelid swelling or mucus discharge and will typically develop rapidly after being exposed to an allergen.

If you find yourself experiencing seasonal or out of the ordinary eye irritation, contact the friendly staff at MVI today!
