Need a Hay Fever review?

With Hay Fever Season just around the corner, it is important to know where to seek professional help and advice if you are suffering with symptoms such as red, itchy, or watery eyes.

Hay fever is known for causing this strong allergic response in the eyes. Pollen enters the eye and irritates the conjunctiva (the clear covering over the white of the eye) causing redness and itchiness. The eye naturally tries to remedy this by clearing out the pollen, causing wateriness of the eye.

These symptoms can be especially troublesome if you wear glasses or contact lenses, due to surface build-up of pollen or if you are prone to allergies generally. Therefore, is important to know how you can prevent these symptoms to be best prepared this hay fever season. 

Here are Premier Vision’s top three tips:

1)   Wear wraparound sunglasses to stop the pollen getting into your eyes 

2)   Put petroleum jelly around the nostrils to trap the pollen 

3)   Change your clothes after being outdoors to remove the pollen on your body

Of course, symptoms are sometimes unavoidable. But not to worry, there are other options available in these cases, such as eye drops, which can help to prevent and alleviate your symptoms.
