Health Tip: Help Control Eye Allergy Symptoms

A brimmed hat may help you avoid blowing pollen

(HealthDay News) -- If your eyes are red, itchy and watery because of allergies, there are steps you can take to help ease your discomfort.

The American Academy of Allergy Asthma and Immunology offers this advice:

  • When heading outside, wear a wide-brimmed hat to help prevent pollen from blowing into the eyes.
  • Wear sunglasses when outdoors to help shield the eyes from allergens.
  • After spending time outside, use eye drops to help rinse allergens from the eyes.
  • Talk with your doctor about taking medication to help relieve symptoms.
