Allergy season is in full swing and while I’m trying to treat my symptoms as they occur, the most troublesome one is itchy eyes. There are limited things you can do for your eyes when it comes to allergies, because, well, they are your eyes and you can’t just stick anything in them! My oldest daughter suffers as much as I do from red, and itchy eyes during allergy season and we often have people questioning whether or not we are crying. My eyes tend to tear a lot, and I don’t trust just any brand to help ease my allergy symptoms. Visine is a name that has been around from the time I can remember, and the last time I went to the eye doctor for my symptoms, this is what he recommended.
Visine Allergy drops can’t be used while my contacts are in, but I can take them out, treat my symptoms, and 15 minutes later put my contacts back in and wear them comfortably. VISINE®-A® Eye Allergy Relief Eye Drops temporarily relieve itchy, red eyes that occur from pollen, ragweed, grass, and animal allergies. Did you know that about 1 in 5 Americans suffer from allergies? For the symptoms that are bothersome to your eyes, Visine-A Eye Allergy Relief can moisturize your dry eyes and keep redness and itching at bay.
Visine-A Eye Allergy Relief can be used up to 4 times a day, but check with your doctor before picking up a bottle at your local drugstore. Check out some of Visine’s Allergy tips for indoor and outdoor allergy symptoms:
VISINE® ALLERGY TIPS
- Wash linens and clothes regularly
- Keep windows shut to keep out pollen and other outdoor allergens
- Vacuum and dust often to reduce indoor allergens, such as dust and pet dander
- Run the air conditioner or air filter to sift out allergens. Make sure to keep those air filters clean and replace them regularly
- Put allergy proof covers on pillows, mattresses and comforters to ward off dust mites
- Check the pollen count before going outside each day – pollen counts tend to be highest 5 – 10AM
- Shower after being outdoors to remove allergens that may have stuck to you. Use a sterile saline eye wash to flush allergens out ofyour eyes
- Do not hang laundry to dry outdoors because allergens can stick to the clothes
- Glasses and sunglasses act as a barrier or shield to minimize allergens from sticking to your eyes
- If you prefer to wear contact lenses, choose a daily disposable lens, which can minimize accumulation of allergens as well. Contact lens wearers can use VISINE®-A® Eye Allergy Relief, but need to remove contact lenses before use and wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting contact lenses after using the drops
