Over-the-counter eye drops, like the ones recommended in our ranking above, can provide relief, but should only be administered over the short-term. Antihistamine eye drops can provide relief, but may dry out eyes, and decongestant eye drops should not be used for more than three days.
Other at-home remedies include:
- Saline eye drops
- Artificial tears
- A cold compress
For severe eye allergies, there are also prescription medications available, including mild corticosteroid drops. Other types of treatment plans to discuss with your doctor include immunotherapy, or allergy shots.
Prevention is also key—try to avoid contact with known allergens. Other preventive measures you can consider taking, according to Johns Hopkins Medicine, include:
- Washing your face after contact with allergens
- Frequently washing your clothes
- Showering before bed
- Keeping contact lenses clean
- Change contact solution daily
As with any health symptom, never hesitate to contact your doctor, who can help you identify a treatment plan that is best for you and your needs.
