The spring and summer months can cause havoc with your eyes and we are no strangers to streaming, itchy peepers that cause us much pain during the warmer months. These symptoms can be even more of a nuisance if you wear contact lenses. We look at simple ways to help combat the signs of hay fever and how to protect your eyes.
Firstly, if you live in the city, pollution will also cause irritation to your eyes if they are already feeling the effects of hay fever. During these months it might be an idea to stick to wearing glasses and prescription sunglasses are a must.
Use eye drops to keep itchy eyes at bay and seek prescription hay fever medication if over-the-counter remedies do not appear to be eliminating your symptoms. Eye drops will help keep the eyes moist, as dryness can be very uncomfortable. Taking a daily hay fever tablet may help keep itchy, runny eyes at bay while taking care of other irritants such as the runny nose and sneezing that many sufferers experience.
To avoid further irritation it is advisable not to sunbathe in contact lenses. Steroid eye drops can be prescribed in severe cases of hay fever but it is widely thought that these are too extreme for our delicate eyes and should be avoided if possible.
Try and avoid the outdoors during periods of high pollination and give yourself a cold-water eye bath whenever you can, this will work wonders for keeping dryness and itchiness at bay. The main point as always when it comes to eyes is not to scratch them. This will only irritate the condition more.
Letting hay fever get you down can ruin your summertime, so try and apply as many of these tips to your daily eye care routine as possible. For some, hay fever will always be a problem but learning how to manage it better is key.
