{DRY EYE CENTER}

There are a lot of issues that can cause problems with your eyes, and ocular allergies are among the most common. If you're in the Lincolnshire, IL area and struggling with eye allergies, working with an eye doctor at Eye See can help. The first goal is to determine the cause of the allergy and what parts of the eye it's affecting. At that point, the focus turns to treatment. read on to learn more about the different types of ocular allergies.

Conjunctivitis

There are several types of conjunctivitis, and they all occur as a result of irritants. Pollen, dust mites, mold spores, and other particles that the eyes aren't comfortable with can all lead to conjunctivitis. Conjunctivitis can also be caused by viral or bacterial infection. That can produce symptoms such as dry eyes, burning, stinging, and other feelings of discomfort.

Keratoconjunctivitis

Keratoconjunctivitis is a severe ocular allergy that can lead to corneal damage. When you have keratoconjunctivitis, it may feel as though there's a foreign body in the eye. You may also experience itchy eyes, excessive mucous production, and sensitivity to bright light. Our optometrist will assess your condition to determine whether or not you are suffering from keratoconjunctivitis and provide the corresponding treatment.

Blepharoconjunctivitis

This ocular allergy is an exaggerated immune response to allergens that come into contact with the eyes. That could be everything from glaucoma drops to mascara. Antihistamines and artificial tears can often treat this condition successfully.

Other Types of Ocular Allergies

Delayed and contact allergies are treated by avoiding the irritants that are causing them in the first place. Sometimes, that's easier said than done. But once you know what's causing your eye allergy, our optometrist will help you make lifestyle adjustments to prevent your ocular allergies from occurring.
