Allergies affecting the eye are fairly common. The most common allergies are those related to pollen, particularly when the weather is warm and dry. Other allergy sources include medications, contact lens wear, animal hair, makeup, face cream, and soaps.


Symptoms are temporary and may include redness, itching, tearing, burning, stinging, and watery discharge. These symptoms may be eliminated by avoiding contact with these sources.
