What are the best eye drops for hay fever?
If your eyes are itchy, inflamed, and red - you could be suffering from hay fever, caused by allergens such as pollen.
But there’s good news - these symptoms can be easily treated.
Why not try Oprex’s allergy range? They have eye drops for itchy eyes, ones to soothe irritation, and eye drops to reduce hay fever symptoms altogether.
If you’d prefer another applicant type, there are sprays, too, like Murine which provides natural relief against hay fever, so you can enjoy the outdoors, allergen-free.
How do I use eye drops?
You can apply eye drops while sitting, standing or lying down - whatever you find the easiest and most comfortable.
Tilt your head back and position your finger below your lower-lid and gently pull down to form a pocket.
Look upwards and squeeze the bottle until the recommended drops are deposited into the pocket.
Then close your eyes, don’t blink, and keep them closed for a couple of minutes to allow the product to sink in.
Afterwards, dab around your eyes to remove any excess product.
Can I use eye drops with contact lenses?
If you have an eye problem, it’s best to avoid using contact lenses until your condition has improved.
Most eye drops aren’t intended to be used alongside contact lenses, and the application of the lenses may make your condition worse.
If you have an eye infection such as pink eye, allergies or an eye injury, apply the drops to your natural eye and don’t use your lenses afterwards.
If you regularly suffer from dry eyes, you could try Murine Contacts Refresh and Clean which has been formulated to use with contact lenses, helping to moisturise your eyes and clear away any dirt to restore clarity to your vision.
What causes itchy eyes?
Itchy eyes are common and usually caused by an irritant, such as an allergy.
This will usually be in the form of pollen, dust or animal dander, and can cause redness and swelling in addition to itching.
You shouldn’t itch your eyes as it can make them worse; rather, you should find a suitable treatment option to relieve your symptoms.
