For those with allergies, this could mean that it is time to take extra care when it comes to staying healthy. Our optometrists in Henderson, Trang Tran, OD & Esther Tan, OD, are here to help you meet and greet these springtime allergies and keep your eyes safe from any airborne particles and irritants that may affect your eyes.

Eye allergies can be irritating. They cause redness, itching, watery eyes, or even dryness. Everyone’s eyes and allergies are different, but Trang Tran, OD & Esther Tan, OD are here to help every patient combat their symptoms successfully. Even if you don’t have any preexisting eye conditions or allergies, airborne particles can still find their way into your eyes and cause significant damage. If you ever find your eyes irritated or find grit, dust, gravel or any foreign objects in your eyes, it is important that you wash them out immediately and seek medical help with our optometrists in Henderson if irritation or discomfort persists. These airborne particles are abundant this time of year and can cause injury or damage to your eye. If not flushed out properly, they can cause infection or even scratch the cornea. Additionally, if you do have any eye conditions, such as dry eye syndrome, then it is vital that you lubricate and protect your eyes so pollen and other irritating materials are properly washed out of the eye since sufficient tears cannot be naturally produced.

Our optometrists in Henderson, Trang Tran, OD & Esther Tan, OD, are here to help provide comprehensive eye exams to the entire community. While annual eye exams are still important when it comes to monitoring your health, Dr. Tran and Dr. Tan can help determine if you have any eye allergies or conditions that may affect your experience with seasonal allergies. They will provide you with the advice and treatment necessary in order to counteract any allergies and stay irritant-free all spring and summer long.
