What Kind of Doctor Should I See?
If you have tried over-the-counter medications and your eye allergy symptoms persist, or if you would like to discuss prescription treatment options, you should consult a doctor or eye care professional. You can see a general practitioner or any doctor that specializes in vision to determine next steps. Your general practitioner may then refer you to an allergist/immunologist, an eye care professional, or an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) specialist depending on the severity of your allergies. Together, you and your doctor or eye care professional can determine the best treatment plan for you.
