In brief: Itchy Eyes
You are likely allergic to something in the environment, such as pollen or mold.
For allergies involving the eyes, if the eyes are red and itchy, it is possible to try artificial tears, such as refresh, or an allergy product such as zaditor (ketotifen). If these do not help, contact your local ophthalmologist for an appointment.

In brief: Environmental
There are many environmental causes of allergic conjunctivitis or itchy eyes, mostly pollen, but can be other factors such as industrial pollutants.
When the ozone levels are high, patients with allergies are advised to stay indoors.
