As spring approaches, it’s important to be proactive and prepare your eyes for allergy season in Leawood with help from our optometrist. Pollen, dust, pet dander, mold and car exhaust can all trigger eye allergy symptoms, which include mild to severe itching, red eyes, excessive watering, and burning. Some individuals may even experience eye discharge.
When you come in for your Leawood eye exam this spring, you can expect our eye doctor to examine the overall health of your eyes and perform an eye test to check for visual acuity problems and update your prescription or provide you with your first prescription for eyeglasses and/or contact lenses.
If you are experiencing any eye allergy symptoms or are concerned about eye allergies this spring, our eye doctor can discuss your symptoms with you during your vision exam appointment and provide you with treatment options and lifestyle suggestions to help reduce your symptoms.
Common lifestyle suggestions include keeping your windows on your home and car closed during high pollen days and utilizing your air conditioner. Air conditioners contain air filters that help remove pollen and other particulate matter from your indoor air.
In addition to giving you ideas to help you be proactive about managing your itchy, watery eyes, our eye doctor can recommend eye drops, including decongestant eye drops as well as artificial tears and antihistamines to help you control your symptoms.
