Itchy eyes

Anyone else having eye issues?  I don't see anything on the allergy forecast - only thing is ragweed pollen is low.  No grass or tree pollen at the moment.  Visine doesn't seem to help too much.


I’m sorry no-one else has replied, Jamie. You might also be reacting to any soot, smoke or ash in the air especially if people have wood fires/briquette fires on their decks or in their fireplaces. 
Patanol drops are brilliant for itchy eyes, particularly if you have headaches or a slightly drippy nose too. We import Patanol from the USA. Here we can only get it with a prescription (allergist, regular doc, eye doctor, optometrist). Good luck!

I use Pataday--brand name (olopatadine is the generic). It works really well. I use it every morning, year round: one drop in each eye. It is OTC here and the generic is cheaper, but it's still not inexpensive.


Used to use Opcon A for allergy itchy eyes.  Very helpful.


Have you changed washing detergent? Adopted a cat? Seen a doc about pinkeye?


I have an HP laptop that has Bing installed. I don’t use it as my browser but get regular updates about weather, traffic (better than Waze!), stock market… The little icon said pollen was high but pollen.com said the levels are low. I don’t know who to believe by my allergies are on fleek. I do have tree allergies so it would make sense for me. 


I went from Visine AC to Zaditor and I think that was a little better.  Still have a little issue - but I think it's subsiding a little.  I will look into Pataday and Opcon A if this gets worse - thanks for the recos!

I use Pataday.  My eye doctor recommended it.  Works great !  There are 2 types.  Once a day or twice a day.
