What Triggers Eye Allergies?
Eye allergies medically referred to as allergic conjunctivitis like most allergic reactions are caused by weak conjunctiva (a part of the eye). Once it is exposed to allergens, your immune system will react to a wide variety of items that are not a threat to your body. Your body swiftly counters these mechanisms by releasing histamine – a chemical responsible for inflammation and swelling. This, in turn, causes your eyes’ blood vessels to swell thereby causing your eyes to become red, itchy and teary. The following are common eye allergens:
- Indoor allergens such as pet dander and dust, these are the most occurring forms of eye allergies. They are also known as perennial or chronic conjunctivitis.
- Pollen from trees, weeds, and grasses. These are naturally-occurring eye allergies that last all year round.
- Your eye may become red and sensitive to contact lenses. This kind of allergy is termed as giant papillary conjunctivitis.
- Contact conjunctivitis comes in the form of chemicals such as perfume or makeup. These have the most potent effect on your eye than most other allergies.
