When an allergen triggers an immune system response, your body will produce signs and symptoms that a fight is going on within your body. Your immune system is incredible; it fights threats to help you stay healthy!

But, what if your immune system misidentifies a harmless particle as a threat? An overreaction to a threat may produce symptoms such as:

  • Eyelid swelling
  • Grittiness
  • Itchiness
  • Redness
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Watery eyes

If you experience one or more of these symptoms when you contact an allergen, make an appointment with our amazing team. We can help!

How We Can Help Your Itchy Eyes

When you have itchy eyes, your entire day is negatively affected. It becomes harder to see, making simple activities much more difficult. The Langford Allergy team can help by eliminating the root of the problem. We don’t want to only manage your symptoms – although we can absolutely help with those, too – but, we want to eliminate the problem altogether.

Our team will determine exactly which allergen your immune system is perceiving as a threat. From there, we can prescribe medication or discuss the option of allergy shots with you. Allergy shots teach your immune system that it does not need to overreact (produce symptoms) when the allergen is near.
