Seasonal Allergies how they attack your eyes
As we welcome the spring growing season, pollen is spreading through the air to fertilise the plants. When a person with allergies breathes in this pollen, or it gets into contact with the eyes, the body identifies it as a threat, this triggers an allergic reaction, causing uncomfortable, irratated eyes.
We have asked our professional team, which are the treatment options available, and which are the most effective to offer some relief. When the body comes into contact with the pollen molecule, either via the throat or eyes, it releases substance called IgE, these antibodies attach to mast cells, which in turn release hisamine. Hisamine is the main substance responsible for pollen allergy symptoms.
There are 2 main types of allergies
Seasonal allergies which as the name suggested are most prominant when the season changes. Be aware there are different types of pollen so one person might be effected by the pollen coming from flowing tress and plants, while another from the pollen which comes from grass especially when it has been freshly cut.
Perenneal allergies, sufferers from this type of alleregy are effected all year round, are this type is due to a reaction to dust mites, some animals and mold.
