“I’m going to scratch my eyes out!”

If you’re saying this right now, put down your sandpaper/car keys/dinner forks and walk away slowly. I promise you, scratching your eyes out is not the answer for your discomfort.

Pollen in the air can make your eyes itch, burn and sting like crazy some days. If you’re suffering from this right now, there is hope! Here are some friendly reminders of ways to relieve those miserable eyes:

  1. If you’ve never been tested for allergies before, now is definitely the time. Come on in – I can tell you what’s making your eyes itch and what we can do to make it stop.
  2. If you’ve been prescribed a steroid nasal spray in the past, USE IT. If your nasal allergy symptoms are controlled, your eyes will itch much less, and sometimes the itching will stop completely. If your nasal spray isn’t working, it could be a sign you need something stronger, or that you have a sinus infection (which will also make itching eyes much worse).
  1. There are very effective (in my opinion, heaven-sent) eye drops that you can use to relieve your symptoms in a matter of minutes. These are prescription strength antihistamine eye drops. Come see us and I can give you some great ones to try, and write you a prescription for the eye drop that works best for you.

Don’t put up with your eyes feeling this way! I feel your pain, and I can tell you – life is so much better after getting the proper treatment.

Your friendly neighborhood PA,

Nikki Zack, PA-C
