Allergy and Dry Eye Treatment and Exams in Morristown

Allergic reactions to pollen, dust, and other allergens can cause symptoms that affect the eyes. Dry eye conditions can also cause symptoms that resemble allergy symptoms. Those who have allergies, dry eye conditions or both can benefit from having exams done in order to determine the best type of allergy or dry eye treatment. Our eye doctor Morristown provides these types of exams and treatments.

Symptoms of Dry Eye Conditions and Allergies

There are several symptoms of dry eye conditions and allergies that affect the eyes and potentially interfere with vision. These symptoms can make it difficult for individuals to do regular activities, such as driving a car or reading, if they cause considerable discomfort. Some of the common symptoms of allergies and dry eye conditions include itchiness, redness, and swelling. For those with allergies, this is known as allergic conjunctivitis. Those with allergies might also experience other symptoms, such as headaches, problems sleeping, itchiness in the throat or nose, coughing, sneezing and a runny nose. Those who have dry eye conditions might have other symptoms, such as blurry vision, sensitivity to light, soreness in the eyes and a burning sensation. They might also feel like they have sand or grit in their eyes. 

Exams for Allergies and Dry Eyes

Those who have allergy symptoms or dry eye conditions should have their eyes examined. This helps ensure an accurate diagnosis, which affects the kind of treatment that can provide them with relief from their symptoms. Our Morristown eye doctor offers comprehensive exams to determine the cause of eye symptoms. After making a diagnosis, our eye doctor will recommend a suitable course of treatment.

Treatments for Allergy and Dry Eye Symptoms

Treatments for allergies that affect the eyes include over-the-counter or prescription antihistamine or decongestant eye drops. Antihistamine eye drops provide fast relief for allergy symptoms, while decongestant eye drops remove redness. Other treatment options include non-steroidal anti-inflammatory eye drops, which reduce inflammation for those with allergies. Prescription steroid eye drops can also relieve symptoms, but these should only be used on a short-term basis. For those with dry eye symptoms, managing an underlying condition that might be causing them can bring relief. Other treatments for dry eyes include medications to stimulate tear production and procedures, such as closing the tear ducts and unblocking oil glands. Dry eye treatments also include light therapy, eyelid massages, and special contact lenses. Our eye doctor helps patients determine the right kind of treatment based on a diagnosis and the severity of their symptoms. Other factors, such as an underlying medical condition, can also affect the type of treatment used.
