Allergies distract me from homework and keeping my eyes open really painful. Why isn't allergy medication working?

In brief: Treatment

You need a stepped approach to treatment.
Eliminate the allergen, go on loratidine or cetrizine, and use eye drops. I start with zaditor which is over the counter and this fails consider prescription mess such as bepreve (bepotastine besilate). Tough cases do well on alrex. Talk to your eye doctor.
