Top Eye Allergy Tips

Tips to help  you cope with Allergy Season :
  1. Stay Clear: Minimize or eliminate contact with  allergy triggers. For example, stay indoors when pollen counts are at  their peak (mid-morning and early evening) or when it’s really windy  outside.
  2. Stay Cool: Holding a clean face cloth soaked in ice-cold water over closed eyes for 5-10 minutes will reduce itchiness.
  3. Artificial tears: Non-prescription artificial tear eye  drops can provide relief, especially if they are stored in the  refrigerator to keep them cold.
  4. Squeaky Clean: Clean floors with a damp rag or mop rather than dry dusting or sweeping.
  5. Protect Your Self: When heading outside, wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to help prevent pollen from blowing into your eyes.
  6. Dust buster: Keep furnace filters and air conditioners clean to keep mites and dust at bay.
  7. Close your windows: Close your car windows when driving.
  8. Dispose of lenses:  Pollen sticks to moist surfaces and contact lenses are one of them. Switch to daily disposables during allergy season.
  9. Don't Rub: Don’t rub or touch your eye, this will only make it worse.
  10. Talk to your doctor at Main St Optometry: If symptoms persist or get worse, book an appointment to learn about treatments that are best suited to you.
