How to Handle Eye Allergies

Can you provide general recommendations that may help people suffering from Eye Allergies?

Most commonly, home care consists of flushing the eye with water and applying cool compresses as needed along with OTC ocular lubricants. With exposure to an allergen to the eye, it is important to thoroughly flush the eye with lukewarm tap water or commercially prepared eyewash solution. If these remedies are not working or if there is eye pain, extreme redness, or heavy discharge, you should seek medical advice. Some conditions, for example, are serious with potential sight-threatening complications if required treatment is delayed.
