Eye Allergy and Dry Eye Relief

Eye Allergy and Dry Eye Relief

Allergy

Allergic conjunctivitis can be more frequent in the dry Colorado climate; studies indicate that it affects between 15 and 40 percent of the population.

All patients, and especially contact lens wearers, may be less comfortable toward the end of the day if they have conjunctivitis. Irritation, discharge, dryness, movement of the contact lens and poor visual acuity are some of the signs associated with allergic conjunctivitis.

Eye Allergy and Dry Eye Relief may come by:

  • Changing contact lens brands from monthly or two-week lenses to daily disposable contact lenses.
  • Decreasing wear time.
  • Cleaning with a hydrogen peroxide-based soft lens care system.

Artificial tears and allergy medicine may provide additional relief.

Prescription allergy eye drops may be necessary if symptoms persist.  Talk with your eye care doctor.
