Eye Allergy Relief

Allergic conjunctivitis can develop more frequently in our dry Colorado climate; studies indicate that it affects between 15 and 40 percent of the population.

All patients, and especially contact lens wearers, may be less comfortable toward the end of the day if they have conjunctivitis. Irritation, discharge, dryness, movement of the contact lens, and poor visual acuity are some of the signs associated with allergic conjunctivitis.

Eye Allergy and Dry Eye Relief may come by:

  • Changing contact lens brands from monthly or two-week lenses to daily disposable contact lenses.
  • Decreasing wear time.
  • Cleaning with a hydrogen peroxide-based soft lens care system.

Artificial tears and anti-allergy medications may provide additional eye allergy relief. Prescription allergy eye drops may be necessary if symptoms persist. Talk with our optometrist at Spectrum Eye Care to learn what the best course of treatment may be for you.
