Immune System

Eye allergies are caused when your body’s immune system overreacts to something in the environment. The allergen comes into contact with mast cells, which cause a reaction. These mast cells release histamine and other substances, which can cause inflammation of the eye. This inflammation causes redness and swelling of the eye.

The best way to relieve an allergic reaction is to prevent it before it happens. Antihistamines can help reduce swelling and relieve the irritation. You can also use a cold compress to reduce the symptoms. Another option is to apply artificial tears to your eyes to moisturize them. Finally, you can also use plain saline eye drops to rinse allergens from your eyes.
