Eye Allergies

Allergies can greatly impact your ability to live life comfortably and complete daily activities. It's important to get treatment for allergies if you notice your symptoms are worsening or not going away. At Innovative Eye Care in Bakersfield, CA, we have treated eye allergies for many years. If you've been suffering from allergy symptoms, it's best to get the help of an optometrist who can determine the proper course of treatment and prevent your symptoms from returning.

Eye Allergies

What are Eye Allergies?

Eye allergies are allergies caused by an autoimmune response that can mistake normal environmental factors for an invader. Symptoms of eye allergies include:

  • Eye swelling
  • Redness of the eye
  • Excessive itching of the eye
  • Excessive tear production
  • Blurry vision
  • Watery discharge
  • Eye pain
  • The feeling of a foreign object in the eye

Do I Need Help From an Optometrist?

Our eye doctor will perform an eye exam to determine what is causing your allergies. Eye infections can also mimic the symptoms of allergies, so it's important to visit an optometrist right away to determine the true cause of your symptoms. After identifying what is causing your symptoms, we will recommend treatment. This can include taking medications such as antihistamines. If you cannot take antihistamines, our eye doctor will determine what the specific allergen is that is causing your symptoms. Allergens include anything from pollen to dust, dander, mites, and even certain household cleaning products. The best way to prevent allergies and severe symptoms is to avoid this allergen altogether.
