Fall is upon us, and with all the beautiful golden landscape comes all that  allergy-causing, pollen-packed wind. Yes, you can definitely smell it in the air, allergy season has officially begun. And with Arizona being one of the top-runners as one of the allergy capitals of America,  we suggest you buckle up and read on for some useful advice.

Symptoms that suggest seasonal allergic conjunctivitis include the following:

If you have any of these symptoms without the itching, chances are that you are experiencing an ordinary allergic reaction. Itching is one of the most prominent symptoms of seasonal allergic conjunctivitis, and typically affects both eyes. It is most often triggered by pollen carried in the air from grass or ragweed. As previously mentioned, the onset is usually most notable at the beginning of the beginning of the fall season, or the spring season, too. It is important to seek medical attention at the onset of these symptoms because the condition may escalate to a more serious case if left untended. Usually, the conjunctiva will start to swell and the eye will develop chemosis, which is a glassed over look that makes them appear watery or gelatinous.
