Why do I have eye allergies?

Like many other types of allergies, eye allergies can be caused by many factors, including:

  • pollen
  • mold
  • pet dander
  • eye makeup
  • facial cleansers, shampoos, soaps and detergents
  • chemical fumes
  • pollutants including smoke and car exhaust

Contact lens wearers may be more likely to develop eye allergies, and most people who have allergic symptoms in their eyes also have other allergic conditions, including allergic rhinitis (hay fever) or atopic dermatitis (eczema). Living or working amongst dust is also a contributor to allergic reactions within your eyes.

What are the symptoms of eye allergies?

Symptoms of eye allergies may range from mild to severe, this all depends on your sensitivity and exposure to certain allergens, like dust, pollen, and smoke. Some of the most common eye allergy symptoms include:

  • itching, stinging or burning sensations
  • excessive tearing
  • redness
  • thick mucus discharge from the eyes, especially while sleeping
  • heightened sensitivity to light
  • foreign body sensation (the feeling an object is poking into your eye)

Sometimes, eye allergy symptoms may occur with other allergic symptoms, such as sore or itchy throat, sneezing, or runny nose.

Eye allergy treatment options

The most ideal way to reduce flare-ups of your eye allergies is to reduce your exposure to allergens when possible. However, in many cases, allergens are unavoidable, especially ones coming from seasonal pollutants like pollen. Current treatments for eye allergies include prescription eye drops which help to reduce itching and other eye allergy symptoms. In more severe cases, antihistamines may be prescribed as well to help treat the allergy systemically. If you experience eye allergies, it’s best to avoid long-term use of over-the-counter eye drops, since overuse of these products can cause symptoms to become worse or may mask symptoms that indicate a more serious underlying condition. Additionally, overuse of over the counter eye drops may lead to dry eyes. Instead, make an appointment to have your symptoms evaluated to ensure they aren’t related to an infection or another serious issue.
