As part of National Indoor Allergy Week, the College of Optometrists has developed some simple tips to keep itchy eyes at bay this winter.
Francesca Marchetti from the College of Optometrists advises: “There’s nothing worse than itchy, sore eyes and often they are caused by allergies. There are things you can do to reduce the risk of allergic reactions and your optometrist can advise whether symptoms such as irritation or redness are an allergic reaction or an infection or other eye condition. Allergic symptoms should disappear once you are away from the environment that is causing them, so that’s a good way to identify the problem. These tips can also help make life a little more comfortable."
