…Welcome All the New Beginnings!
No matter how long winter lasts, spring is always sure to follow! As the snow finally melts away and the flowers bloom, most people start to become affected by spring allergies. Triggers such as various plant pollen, grass, dust, and molds can create great discomfort and it’s important to take steps to safeguard and/or alleviate any spring allergy symptoms.
Many people notice redness, itching, tearing, and lid swelling as common spring allergy symptoms. Before trying to self-treat, it is important to first be evaluated at Giliberti Eye and Laser Center. This will help ensure that symptoms are not due to a different cause, such as infection, inflammation, or dry eye. After a thorough examination, Dr. Giliberti will be able to recommend the appropriate medication, whether over-the-counter or prescription, to use in treating your specific problems.
With everyone’s busy lifestyle, it can be difficult to avoid the allergens that cause spring allergy symptoms. When outside, be sure to wear sunglasses to shield your eyes from airborne allergens. If you wear contacts, it may also be beneficial to remove them and use glasses instead, as allergens can build-up on the surface of the lenses. If removing contact lenses and using eyeglasses is not a desirable option, find out if you are a candidate for Laser Vision Correction during your complete evaluation at Giliberti Eye and Laser Center!
