Seasonal and perennial allergies are the most common types of eye allergies, with 95% of eye allergies falling into these two categories.
Seasonal Eye Allergies
Seasonal eye allergies are more widespread, usually occurring in the early spring through the summer and also through autumn. Allergens in the air that irritate the eyes include pollen (from grass, trees and other plants), and spores (from various types of mold).1,2,4
Perennial Eye Allergies
Perennial allergies occur throughout the year due to dust mites, feathers, pet dander, smoke, chlorine, air pollution, and certain medications.
Doctors can give you a simple test to discover which specific allergens may be causing your allergies as well as a treatment plan that is appropriate for the severity of your eye allergies.2,3
