Varied symptoms: Eye allergy symptoms include redness, itching, tearing, thick ropy discharge, grittiness, and puffiness of the eyelids. These symptoms are triggered by exposures to allergens which can include dust mites, mold, pet dander, feathers, cockroaches, and pollen. Taking antihistamines either orally or in the form of eye drops before a known exposure can prevent these symptoms.
