Dry Eye: Do Allergies Make Your Symptoms Worse?

Barbara explains how allergies affect her dry eye condition and how hormones cause an unexpected ocular symptom.

My name is Barbara. I have been a patient of Dr. Gong’s for probably about ten years. She practices in the northwest valley part of Phoenix around the area of 35th Avenue north of Greenway Road.

Fortunately I don’t have a lot of allergies, but this year I’ve had a lot of allergies and I wear contacts so I was concerned. I never want to use the eye drops because I was told you shouldn’t use eye drops with contacts, but since I have come here she gave me a prescription for eye drops and I have used them and they are wonderful. They have helped immensely. So I put them in an hour or so before I put my contacts in and it’s really helped a lot.

I think as a woman and getting older the hormones do change and I think probably I have had a lot of change, not only in my vision but also in the dryness in my eyes, but with drops we can combat that.
