    Allergy Attacks!

    Do you have itchy eyes?  Do your eyelids swell?  Do your eyes tear or become red and inflamed?

    You may be suffering from allergies. 

    According to the American Academy of Ophthalmology, seasonal allergies affect more than 35 million Americans each year and can have a tremendously negative impact on an individual’s quality of life. Tree pollens in April and May, grass pollens in June and July and mold spores and weed pollens in July and August add up to a five-month barrage of eye-irritating allergens.

    There are several different medical solutions and environmental solutions that may give you relief from these allergies.  You will need an eye exam to determine the treatment route that is best for you.  Call for an appointment!  270-780-2494
