Many people suffer from sniffling and sneezing during allergy season, but eye infections are not uncommon during this time of year. Experts say that failing to properly diagnose an eye infection can result in months of discomfort, according to WBAL-TV.
"This is the worst allergy season in years," Sandra Belmont, an ophthalmologist and clinical associate professor of ophthalmology at the New York University School of Medicine, told the news source. "One in three of my patients has allergic conjunctivitis."
Leaving this condition untreated can result in a viral infection over time, which is why more physicians are encouraging people to seek medical attention for their allergies. The ailment can be treated fairly simply through medication.
To remove allergens from your living space, consider purchasing an air purifier. A HEPA filter can remove irritants from a home and make it easier to breathe.
The IQAir HealthPro Plus is designed to eliminate ultrafine particles smaller than 0.3 microns in size from living spaces with its HyperHEPA filter. Dust, pollen and mold spores can all be removed from a room with the IQAir HealthPro Plus. This can be especially beneficial for individuals with allergies and respiratory ailments.
