Hay fever and contact lenses. Do they go together?

Red and itchy eyes, watery eyes, as if you are feeling grit under your eyelids. Yes. Spring is here. Spring means seasonal allergies. for 10–30% of the world.

During springtime hypersensitive individuals face the two most common allergens – after the winter the air is polluted with dust and pollen flying air.

But beware – in the spring the symptoms of seasonal allergies are more visible. However, this does not mean that the rest of the year they do not exist. Various forms of seasonal allergy occur 8–10 months of the year.

I'm allergic and I wear lenses. What can I do?

Seasonal allergy or hay fever should not put you off wearing contact lenses. You must maintain them properly. How should you do it? Reduce the amount of time you wear lenses during the day. Using repeated wear lenses such as monthly or weekly ones? Ask your optician about the best choice for cleaning solution during the time when the amount of pollen in the air is at its highest. The less dirt, allergens and proteins on the surface of the lens, the less irritation of the cornea and weaker symptoms of allergy you will have. Do not forget the eye drops, of course, consult an expert before deciding to use them.

When allergy symptoms are the worst, choose daily disposable contact lenses

Daily disposable contact lenses are applied in the morning and removed and binned in the evening. No disinfecting solutions are needed, enjoy daily new and clean contact lenses without residues and allergens. Many international studies, such as Hayes, VY, Schnider & CM Veys J in “An evaluation of daily disposable lenses in a population of allergy sufferers” Contact Lens & Anterior Eye 2003, confirm that the allergic symptoms are the weakest when wearing daily disposable lenses . The feeling of a foreign body in the eye, conjunctival redness and other unpleasant symptoms of allergies occur much less frequently.
