Hay Fever Season
WINDSOR, England, May 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
The advent of Spring in the UK heralded the first instances of hay fever. It has been
growing steadily stronger as we advance towards the dreaded grass hay fever season (which
appears in the Summer and impacts the majority of hay fever sufferers). When compared to
the Summer irritation of grass pollen, the tree pollen that is more common in Springtime
appears gentle to the 25 per cent of people in the UK who experience hay fever.
Chemists and pharmacy stores are packed with customers, all clamouring for a range of
antihistamines and other products designed to ease the seasonal discomfort.
These solutions should be combined with other, simpler methods of minimising the
irritation and inconvenience of hay fever. Something as seemingly minor as wearing glasses
can make a big difference to comfort.
Pollen abounds in Spring and Summer. It comes from a range of sources including grass,
trees, flowers and bushes – so there are potential irritants coming from all directions,
with pollen getting in to the eyes. This causes itching, swelling and sneezing. Having
wraparound sunglasses can help to protect the eyes, but if you wear contact lenses it is
advisable to use daily disposables.
Contact lenses are available from LensWay, who are currently offering their Splash One
Day range on a buy one, get one free basis for a pack of 30 lenses. This should help to
reduce the cost of changing contacts every day, which is very important during the hay
fever season due to the build up of pollen around the lens! Just use the code SPLASH.
