Eye allergies can be extremely uncomfortable. Instead of taking a "wait and see" approach, we advise that you consult with our Okmulgee and South Tulsa optometry team as soon as you can if you believe you or a loved one has eye allergy symptoms. The earlier a diagnosis can be made, the earlier treatment and symptom relief can begin!
Allergies happen when our immune systems mistakenly identify foreign substances (usually innocuous and non-harmful) as threats. This triggers a classic inflammatory immune response, which includes the release of various protective cells and molecular compounds (including histamine) within the body.
When an allergy happens in the eye, very uncomfortable symptoms can develop, including:
These may be accompanied by respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, itchy throat, and a runny nose.
The environment and genetics influence who gets eye allergies. Common triggers include medications, smoke, dust, pet dander, pollen, fungus, mold, household chemicals, contact lens solution, make-up, and other cosmetic products.

Plus, if you rub or itch your eyes, you may end up causing infections, corneal scratches, and other issues. This is why we recommend consulting with an optometrist in Okmulgee or South Tulsa if you notice any of the above symptoms. We can help you in a few ways:
