Allergy In Eyes

Eye allergy presents with eye itching, redness, swelling, excessive tearing, and burning sensation of the eye. Dust, pollen, animal dander, eye makeup products, etc., can trigger an allergic reaction. Cleaning eyes with clean water and hands to eliminate the allergen is necessary for symptoms to subside. It is not advised to rub the eyes. Doing so will trigger inflammation. Covering eyes with sunglasses while going out might prevent eye contact with allergens.
