Can You Explain How Pollen Makes Your Eyes Itchy If You Are Allergic To It
Histamine release: A person has allergies if his immune system over-reacts to certain types of pollen, and the histamine (and other chemicals) released by his immune system causes itching, runny nose, watery eyes, wheezing, cough, lots of mucus, etc... The treatment is avoidance of pollen, and use of oral or eye-drop antihistamines, and nasal steroids. For bad eye allergies, eye doctors prescribe eye-drop steroids.See 1 more doctor answer

What allergy eye drops can I purchase to relieve itchy eyes due to the high pollen count during the summer?
Antihistamine: While lubricating drops help some, antihistamines drops do the most for eye allergy symptoms, including itching & watering. There are many over-the-counter antihistamine products to choose from. Older products may be combined with decongestants which decrease redness; however, overuse of these products may cause increased rebound redness. Plain antihistamine drops are your best bet for itching.See 1 more doctor answer
Allergy drops: You could use an over the counter allery eyedrop such as zaditor (ketotifen). This in combination with cool, moist compresses usually gives relief. If this is not success full, you will need to see an ophthalmologist or allergist for prescription medication. The zaditior drops used to be available only by prescription but are now over the counter.

Eye : Eye drops and nasal sprays can relieve symptoms of ocular itching. They are given over the counter but if not strong enough, an allergist can prescribe more effective eyedrops and nasal sprays. Allergy shots over a year or two will also benefit thus scenario.See 1 more doctor answer

I get a bubble on my eyeball after a sever allergy attack. Is this a normal reaction? I'm allergic to cat dander and when i'm exposed to them my eyes get itchy and watery. However over the past year i've noticed a bubble of fluid on my left eyeball while
This : This type of swelling occurs in the clear covering over the white part of the eye. This clear layer is called the conjunctiva, and it has cells that produce tears, mucous and oils to keep the surface of the eye moist when these cells get over-stimulated, they can over-produce fluids, and this fluid can get trapped between the conjunctiva and the sclera (the white layer), so a bubble forms. Usually, this bubble will go away as you get better, but if it is irritating, or if it lasts longer, you should see an ophthalmologist (optometrists are not medical doctors, and most cannot prescribe medications) who can prescribe an anti-allergy drop such as patanol, Pataday or bepreve (bepotastine besilate). I often find that this is not sufficient, and a short course of steroid eye drops works better. These must be used with care, under the guidance of your doctor. One last note, please don't press on that bubble, or put anything else in your eye! this can make it more irritated, or cause other problems.See 2 more doctor answers
My doc says cos I'm allergic to ondansetron that I'm also allergic to antihistamines, what can I use for gritty itchy eyes due to spring allergies?
Huh?: Ondansetron allergy is very uncommon. I am no allergist, but there is no apparent overlap between the antihistamine H1 and H2 receptor and the antiemetic HT3 receptor that I am aware of. In addition, antihistamines have been used as part of the treatment of ondansteron allergy. I suggest you clear this up with your doc.See 1 more doctor answer

Yes: The most logical approach for allergy is avoidance. However dust may not be the only thing you are allergic to since this is the beginning of the pollen season in your area as the weather starts to warm up along with the melted snow.
