What Are Eye Allergies?
Seasonal allergies are extremely common among adults and children and can cause uncomfortable symptoms. Sneezing, sniffling, and stuffy noses are some of the most well-known symptoms, along with red, teary, irritated, swollen eyes. When your allergies affect your eyes, it is called allergic conjunctivitis, often referred to as ocular or eye allergies. Ocular allergies are extremely common and will affect most patients with seasonal allergies. The symptoms caused by eye allergies can present as slight to extreme, but they almost always have simple treatments. At his practice in Seattle, WA, Dr. Scott Campbell offers the most effective eye allergy treatments to reduce your irritation. Contact us at SPEX to hear more.
How Are Eye Allergies Treated?
In most cases, there aren’t any unusual causes for ocular allergies. Your eyes are simply reacting to the same allergens that cause your other allergic reactions, like sneezing or a stuffy nose. Usually, people with ocular allergies are responding to different types of pollen, fungus, dust mites, pet dander, or other familiar airborne allergens. Often, patients can also experience eye allergies to substances, like perfumes, cigarettes, and makeup. Many allergens are often present on the hands, which is why rubbing the eyes often increases the inflammation.
The surest way to prevent eye allergies is to limit your exposure to the allergen, though this isn't usually possible. Individuals who use contacts and suffer from eye allergies can ease their discomfort by trying daily contacts, as airborne allergens can build up on longer-wear lenses. In addition, a lot of nonprescription eye drops exist that are meant to decrease inflammation and itching, but usually, they offer little to no relief. Patients who have not experienced relief with nonprescription eye drops may need prescription eye drops or they may have developed an infection rather than allergies.
SPEX Seattle Reviews
Dr. Campbell is THE BEST. The staff squeezed me in to his busy schedule for an irritating eye issue. I was in and out in 10 minutes, he determined exactly what was going on, and had a quick solution!!! Did I mention THE BEST!!!
Dr. Campbell and his team are phenomenal. They are all so thoughtful, respectful, knowledgeable, and kind. Each visit is pleasant and efficient. I would highly recommend going to Spex. Additionally, they have a wide array of fashionable and interesting glasses frames to choose from.
While visiting Seattle from Houston, the screw came out of the arm of my glasses. The lovely ladies at Spex were able to fix my glasses better than before with a locktite screw. I am so thankful to be able to use my glasses! Thank you so very much!
The optometrist has (innovative) excellent communication skills. I felt really confident with his advice and prescription. The two staff members made for a comfortable, memorable experience and I will definitely return for my next eye exam.
Dr. Scott Campbell is the best! Our family has been seeing him for many years and my husband and I have moved to 2 different locations that put us 5+ hours and 1.5 hours from his office. We still keep him as our eye doctor. His office is immaculate, his staff is very friendly, caring and helpful, and Scott is up on the latest new eye conventions. He does refer patients to other specialties when needed. Our experience is that he is always on time so no unnecessary waiting for your appointment. His office is in the middle of the downtown core, 1 block from Nordstrom. I never hesitate to recommend Dr. Scott Campbell at Spex!
