As I was helping my husband pack for a quick business trip, he was frantically trying to find some allergy pills as Springtime in the Bay Area means many blooms and pollen. I also reminded him to pack his homeopathic Similasan Allergy Eye Relief drops as his eyes will get itchy the minute he steps off the airplane. Pollen is a fine powder that is produced by plants and is released into the air when flowers bloom. This fine pollen dust can travel long distances, meaning you don’t necessarily have to be in a garden to suffer.
When pollen comes into contact with the eyes, it can trigger an allergic reaction. While we can’t prevent exposure to seasonal allergies, are a number of things you can do to prevent eye irritation in the springtime.
Some tips to prevent pollen-induced eye irritation include:
- Stay indoors when pollen counts are high.
- Wear sunglasses when you are outdoors & make sure to keep your sunglasses, eyeglasses & phones wiped clean often.
- Wash your hands often.
- Avoid touching your eyes.
- Use a humidifier in your home.
- Keep your home clean and free of dust.
- Bathe your pets regularly.
- Clean your air filters regularly.
- Use Natural Eye Drops for relief.
Similasan Allergy Eye Relief™ eye drops provide instant relief to remedy eye irritation naturally but contain no harsh vasoconstrictors or antihistamines. Everyone in my family uses Similasan as it soothes eyes instantly and it’s safe to use with our contact lenses. The key ingredients in the Allergy Eye Relief™ eye drops contain an extract of Eyebright (Euphrasia) & Sabadilla lily (Sabadilla). I just start with 2-3 drops per eye, and then add a few more if the irritation symptoms persist.
I now keep a bottle in my car for those times that I forget about pollen exposure. I went to my friend’s garden the other day to harvest sweet pea blooms and Wham! My eyes started to get itchy after working in the garden for about an hour.
