Enjoy spring while fighting allergy symptoms! If you are allergic to pollen, it is very possible that you have already started to notice some of the most common symptoms such as sneezing, nasal congestion or itchy and irritated eyes. Without a doubt, it is a really annoying time since these symptoms can alter your quality of life. There will be plans that you have to stop doing, such as playing sports outdoors or going out into the countryside on days when environmental pollen levels are high.

At Venice Eyewear we want to help you enjoy this wonderful time of year, the mild temperatures invite us to enjoy the outdoors to the fullest. To do this, we are going to explain how pollen allergy affects our eyes and how we can prevent and relieve these annoying symptoms.

First, explain that the allergic reaction occurs when small pollen particles come into contact with the cells that line the eyes, mouth, nose and throat. This occurs in those people where their immune system releases chemicals to try to prevent the spread of what it mistakenly perceives as a foreign agent.

Prevention and treatment of itchy and irritated eyes

At this time of year it is very common among those allergic to pollen to suffer from irritated and itchy eyes, as well as redness and watery eyes. In more severe cases, the eyelids may become inflamed or have allergic conjunctivitis.

One of the best ways to protect your eyes from pollen is to wear sunglasses when you are outdoors. They will act as a protective barrier preventing pollen from entering the eyes. Don't leave home without sunglasses! They will be your great allies against pollen and the sun.

When driving, remember not to roll down the windows to prevent pollen from entering the vehicle. Change the car air conditioning filter and don't forget your sunglasses. They will provide you comfort.

Another recommendation during allergic times is to avoid wearing contact lenses . The ideal is to use glasses or daily disposable contact lenses since allergens can accumulate on the surface of the contact lenses.

To these tips we also want to add the importance of having specific eye drops on hand to address the causes of pollen allergy. They will provide comfort, well-being and relieve discomfort. You can find them in spray format, perfect for use anywhere.
