Can Seasonal Allergies Cause Dry Eyes?

Can Seasonal Allergies Cause Dry Eyes?

Posted by EyePromise on Oct 5th 2023

The fall season is officially here, and so are its allergens. Pollen counts are up, and the main culprit for fall allergies is ragweed pollen. Seasonal allergies are common, with about a quarter of U.S. adults experiencing them. Common symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, and congestion, but there are eye-related symptoms to look out for, as well. Here are some of the most common ocular symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Eye Dryness

Yes, seasonal changes can cause your eyes to feel dry. This can be caused by a few things. As the air cools, it loses moisture. This cold, dry air can cause some people’s eyes to feel dry. Allergens can also cause eyes to feel dry by causing minor swelling within the eye, hindering tear production.

Excessive Watering

If we had to guess what you’re thinking, it’d be, “Wait, didn’t we just read that allergies can cause occasional dry eye? Now you’re telling us it can make them water, too?!” Yes! Seasonal allergies can cause your eyes to water excessively, too, because your eyes are trying to get rid of whatever is irritating them (pollen, dust, etc.). Excessive watering is one of the most common ocular symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Itchiness and Irritation

Allergens are irritants, which is why they can cause your eyes to become irritated (no surprise there). Irritated eyes are a common symptom to experience with allergies. Itchy eyes are another common symptom experienced with seasonal allergies. Because allergens are irritants, your body reacts with itching, which can trigger the scratching reaction to remove the irritants.


The good news is there’s a solution for all these ocular symptoms of seasonal allergies (hint: it’s not an antihistamine)! EyePromise partnered with eye care professionals to develop a one-of-a-kind formula that soothes dry, irritated, itchy, watery eyes from the inside out. EyePromise EZ Tears™ is a clinically proven eye vitamin designed to help the eyes produce higher quality tears and more of them, which helps with many of the symptoms mentioned.

How Does EZ Tears Work?

EyePromise EZ Tears is made of high-quality, natural ingredients expertly chosen based on their beneficial properties. For example, EZ Tears contains ultra-purified fish oil with high concentrations of Omega-3s. Omega-3s are key to soothing the surface of the eye, regardless of the irritant. EZ Tears also includes green tea extract, turmeric root extract, and evening primrose oil, which contains gamma-linoleic acid, all with the aim of soothing the eyes from the inside out.

In a clinical study conducted in 2015, EZ Tears was tested and demonstrated to not only work but work fast. Some participants saw relief in as little as one week with most participants feeling better in 30 days! This led EyePromise to back EZ Tears with a 30-day, money-back satisfaction guarantee.
