Several ways.: If the allergen trigger has been identified, then avoid if possible. Over the counter eye drops that can provide relief include ketotifen or other antihistamine or decongestant eye drops. To make sure it is allergy, an eye doctor can perform an exam. If symptoms are persistent or recurrent, see an allergist to develop a long term treatment plan that may include prescription eye drops.

Can you tell me how I could stop my eyes from tearing from allergies?

Few tips: Wash your hands and face when you come in from outside. There are OTC or prescription antihistamine eye drops. Systemic antihistamines like zyrtec (cetirizine). If all that fails consider allergy shots. I would see an allergist to test for what you are allergic to and go from there.

cold compresses applied to the outside of your eyes can also help to relieve symptoms. And do not rub your eyes--it only makes things worse

My eyes won't stop blinking. Allergies?

Maybe. Itching?: You will blink your eyes if they itch from allergies but blinking can be a symptom of many other eye problems like an infection, a foreign body, or sensitivity to strong light. Blinking can also be an involuntary nervous habit called a "tic" the photo is of "cobblestoning" on the lower eyelid, commonly seen in allergic conjunctivitis.
