Natural Eye Allergy Treatment

Avoid or reduce allergens. This might sound simple but is the best way to offer eye allergy relief.

Nutrition. You want to drink plenty of water and eat a moderately low-fat, high-complex-carbohydrate diet. Dark green, leafy vegetables, onions, garlic, ginger, cayenne, and horseradish are all good. 

Bioflavonoids are natural antihistamines.

Probiotics (lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidus) - Take one in the morning and one in the evening.

Zinc - Take 30 mg daily.

Vitamin C and Vitamin A  

Reduce or eliminate other possible allergens in your diet including alcohol, caffeine, dairy, sugar and wheat

Clean your contact lenses. The surface of contact lenses can attract airborne allergens. Wear glasses during allergy season. 

Eye allergy drops. You can find over-the counter eye drops such as Bausch & Lomb and Visine eye drops. Eye allergies are common and so there shouldn't be a problem finding non-prescription eye drops for allergies to relieve itchiness, redness and watery eyes.

And A Few More

  • Eye allergy medicine such as antihistamines and decongestants as a last resort.
  • Try to not rub your eyes. It can scratch the cornea and possibly make your allergy symptoms worse.
  • Air purifier for your home using a HEPA filter. Vacuum cleaners with HEPA filters will remove more allergens.
  • Keep your house clean
  • Change your air conditioner filter when needed
  • Change your car's cabin air filter every 6 months. More often if you live in a dusty area. 

If you try your own eye allergy treatment and get little to no relief, it's best to talk to your allergy doctor. The doctor or allergist can perform a series of tests to determine the root cause of the allergy and treat it accordingly.
