Hello, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

Most of the time, itchy eyes are caused by some type of allergy. An irritating substance (called an allergen) — such as pollen, dust and animal dander — causes the release of compounds called histamines in the tissues around the eyes, which results in itching, redness, and swelling.
To treat them, find out what triggers them and stay ahead of the symptoms. Eye drops and other medications can bring relief.
