Eye Allergy Treatment
As spring nears and winter melts away, it’s time for seasonal allergy sufferers to start preparing. This is the time of year when pollen takes over the air and inconveniences those who wear contact lenses.
Statistically, one in ten Americans suffer from seasonal eye allergies. The most common symptoms include congestion, sneezing, runny nose and itchy, watery eyes. Eyes that are itchy, burning or watery rank among the most irritating for those who wear contacts.
LASIK surgery is the perfect defense against eye allergies or other irritants experienced by seasonal allergy sufferers. This procedure can update you from pollen-trapping lenses to reducing the need for them at all. Imagine enjoying a beautiful, spring day without worrying about the pollen count!
