Itchy eyes? Try one of these soothing options.
If you have itchy eyes–especially ones that flare up during pollen season–you could have allergies.
Pesky, sure. But fortunately, there are dozens of remedies out there. For milder cases, look for over-the-counter eye drops and antihistamines easily available at any drug store. For more severe allergy symptoms, talk to your doctor about prescription treatments. He or she can also rule out other serious conditions that could be causing your discomfort.
