What are the home remedies for Eye Allergies?
Approximately 20% of the population suffers from allergic conditions, with environmental allergies being the most common of these conditions. Allergic reactions to environmental agents that involve the eyes are a common complaint. An allergic reaction that affects the conjunctiva, a clear layer of mucous membrane overlying the eyes, is commonly referred to as allergic conjunctivitis.Allergic conjunctivitis is divided into several major subtypes, with the most common subtypes being seasonal allergic conjunctivitis (SAC) and perennial allergic conjunctivitis (PAC). SAC and PAC are triggered by an immune reaction involving a sensitized individual and an allergen. Simply stated, this means that if someone is allergic to a particular substance, such as pollen, and then is exposed to it, this triggers an allergic reaction. In the eyes, the allergic reaction can present as itchy eyes, watery eyes, red eyes, and/or swollen eyes.
