In brief: Allergic Conj-itis

Allergic conjunctivitis can be very annoying.
Use cold ice packs if possible when itching sensation starts to stop cycle of allergy. Cold non preserved artificial tears 4-6x/day as needs. MD can Rx mast cell stabilizer to help as well. Steroids used as last resort. Allergy tests can be done early to ID culprits, immunotherapy also; See http://eyedoc2020.blogspot.com for tiered approach on Rx.
