Back To Work……
With the month of March and Spring Break ending, here’s one last “Save Your Vision Month blog post. With warmer spring temps, the allergy season will soon be on is in full force. In fact for sole patients of ours it has already started.
Below is an exerpt of an email about allergies along with a link to some online resources. As always, don’t suffer from ocular allergies needlessly, there are many Rx and over the counter treatments for allergies. Knowing which ones are right for each patient is our specialty. Call us for an appointment at 752-2020 or request one by following this link.
Now for that exerpt I promised:
While eye allergy symptoms are a year-round problem for many, about 67 percent of allergy sufferers say that Spring is the time of year when eye allergy symptoms are worst, according to a recent survey conducted by the Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA). For respondents who wear contact lenses, Spring is particularly frustrating as nearly half (45%) say that their eye-related allergy problems often prevent them from wearing their contacts, and one in ten (12%) admits to having to stop wearing their contacts because of allergies.
To help allergy sufferers better understand and manage their condition, AAFA offers a free educational brochure titled Eye Health and Allergies. The brochure, which also includes smart allergy season strategies for contact lens wearers, can be viewed or downloaded at http://www.aafa.org/eyeallergies.
