San Jose, CA (PRWEB) April 28, 2014

Now that spring is finally here, allergy season is trailing right behind. 20/20 Optometry of Silicon Valley, a leading eye care provider in the Bay Area, stresses the importance of addressing eye allergies and dry eyes with the proper treatment.

As they always say, “April showers bring May flowers.” Tree pollen and flowers start blooming after the rainy season passes through which triggers numerous problems for those with allergies. For some, it is difficult to determine the difference between allergies and dry eyes, and 20/20 Optometry of Silicon Valley wants to help clear the air with some insightful eye-related facts.

Common symptoms of allergies and dry eyes are redness, itchiness of the eyes, watery eyes, or a foreign body sensation in the eyes. For dry eyes, the symptoms are more chronic, and can last for up to several months.

It is important that a person with either condition does not rub their eyes. This will cause the eyes to get worse and become more inflamed. Using over-the-counter, preservative-free eye drops will help soothe the eyes. For someone suffering from allergies, the eye drops will wash out the irritants and will provide some relief if applied enough. Eye drops can also help relieve dry eye symptoms, especially if the person suffers from a water or aqueous deficiency in their tear layer.

When eye allergies appear more intense and unbearable, a person will likely need prescription medications for the eyes and oral medications to allow the body to reduce the allergy symptoms. Allergy symptoms will be more immediate or acute and will last for a short time until the pollen or allergens decrease.

Dr. Jeanette Lee of 20/20 Optometry of Silicon Valley, specializes in the treatment of dry eyes. She reports that underlying causes of the symptoms of itchiness, redness or a feeling something in the eyes, is mostly dry eye related. She urges patients to have a professional help manage dry eyes and allergies, which will dramatically reduce the symptoms.
