Allergic Conjunctivitis is a condition that is caused by the exposure of the eyes to allergy causing substances like pollen, mould, or others. This allergic reaction can cause symptoms like inflammation or swelling in the eyes, as well as itching, burning and watery discharge. This is most common during seasonal changes and can accompany hay fever as well.
HOW IS ALLERGIC CONJUNCTIVITIS DIAGNOSED?
A specialist in the Ophthalmology department can take a look at the eye and diagnose the condition with the help of a visual examination. Also, an allergy skin test or a blood test can be conducted to determine the presence of an allergy. Further, an Ophthalmology specialist can take a sample of the conjunctival tissue to diagnose a particularly chronic case.
HOW IS ALLERGIC CONJUNCTIVITIS TREATED?
Allergic conjunctivitis can be easily treated at home. For instance, by keeping your home dust-free, avoiding exposure to harsh chemicals, dyes, and perfumes. Additionally, one can make use of ayurvedic or homeopathy. Anti-inflammatory eye drops or steroid eye drops can be helpful as well.
DID YOU KNOW?
Allergic conjunctivitis is not contagious, but red, itchy, burning and puffy eyes, caused due to infections, may be a threat to eyesight. Recurring exposure to allergenic substances may trigger the symptom every time in the future.
