Seeking Relief from Eye Allergies? True Vision Can Help

As the seasons shift, allergens in the air change, and for many, this means dealing with the discomfort of eye allergies. These allergies can be triggered by various environmental factors, such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and even mold spores. When these allergens come into contact with your eyes, they can lead to a range of bothersome symptoms, including itching, redness, watery eyes, and a gritty sensation.

Seasonal Allergic Conjunctivitis

This type of eye allergy is the most common and is triggered by airborne allergens prevalent during certain seasons. Spring and fall are notorious for causing seasonal allergic conjunctivitis due to high pollen levels. Symptoms tend to come and go with the changing seasons.

Perennial Allergic Conjunctivitis

Unlike seasonal allergies, perennial allergic conjunctivitis can occur year-round and is usually caused by indoor allergens like dust mites, pet dander, or mold. People with this type of allergy may experience constant eye irritation and discomfort.
