In brief: Eye drops may help

Allergic eyes tend to be puffy and swollen, which can make the lids appear more closed than usual.
Antihistamine eye drops can relieve the symptoms and improve the appearance of your eyes. Your eye doctor can prescribe a variety of different drops. If you take antihistamine pills, though, they may dry your eyes and make them look more tired, so if only your eyes are affected, stop the pills.
