Spring into Allergy Eye Relief
Beautiful springtime weather inevitably brings scratchy eyes, itchy eyes and swollen eyes in Denver and Aurora. Spring allergies can make your life miserable, and if you already have droopy or puffy eyelids, adding eye irritations to the mix will only increase your discomfort.
The condition of droopy eyelids is also called ptosis. Some causes of droopy eyelids are aging, genetics, trauma or other disorders. Sometimes vision becomes impaired and often droopy eyelids make you look tired, angry or older. Constantly rubbing your eyes due to allergen irritation can make the condition worse.
The good news is that eyelid surgery, also called blepharoplasty, is a very effective surgical procedure that can remove excess drooping skin and fat in the upper or lower eyelids. Dr. Serota at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center performs eyelid surgery to help patients look more alert, feel more confident and even see better.
Eyelid surgery won’t prevent you from having eye irritation during the spring, but it may ease some of your physical and mental discomfort that can be the result of droopy eyelids and spring allergies.
Besides over-the-counter medications, here are some other tips to help you through the allergy season:
- Wash bedding and clothes often to rid of allergens. Don’t line-dry clothes outside.
- Use a cool eye compress to provide temporary relief.
- Wear glasses and a hat outdoors to provide some barrier to pollen.
- Avoid going outdoors on extremely windy days.
- Rinse your nasal passage with a saline solution.
