Itchy and puffy eyes are commonly caused by an allergy to something in your environment. Mild itching can be helped with lubricating eye drops. Cool compresses or ice packs can also help reduce the symptoms.

Eye knew that: Avoid rubbing your eyes, which releases chemicals called histamines that increase the itchiness. Also, keep your car windows rolled up when pollen counts are high.

More severe itching may need extra help, such as prescription allergy eye drops or oral antihistamines.

Although itchy eyes aren’t an emergency, let us know. We can help.
