Eye Allergies

How does an eye allergy affect the body?

A Answers (1)

  • If you have an eye allergy, your eyes are having an unnecessary immune response to a harmless substance. As part of this response, the part of your eye called the conjunctiva releases chemicals, like histamines, that cause your eyes to become inflamed. Along with the inflammation, you may experience burning and itching. You may even feel like there's a foreign object stuck in your eye.
