Why Do My Eyes Itch In the Spring?

Why Do My Eyes Itch In the Spring?

Posted by EyePromise on Mar 7th 2024

Spring is in the air! Warmer weather is heading our way, but for many, spring brings about seasonal symptoms that make them wait in dread vs. excitement. These symptoms can range from congestion, sneezing, and a runny nose to red, itchy, watery eyes. So why is spring infamous for these types of symptoms?


Allergens can be anything from pollen, mold spores, and dust to smoke, pet dander, and even beauty products like lotions, makeup, and contacts. Allergens are the main culprits behind the common symptoms mentioned above, and in the spring, tree pollen is one of the most common triggers. Pollen from Oak, Juniper, Mulberry, Elm, Ash, Birch, Maple, Poplar, Aspen, and Cottonwood trees is at its peak between March and May. Grasses like Bermuda, Fescue, and Kentucky Blue also release pollen, but their peak tends to stretch from late spring to early summer.

Why Itching?

Allergy symptoms are your body’s immune response to these types of irritants. When the eyes encounter allergens, the antibodies in the cells within the eye respond by releasing chemicals. These chemicals can cause the tiny blood vessels to leak and the eyes to appear red, itch, and water excessively. It’s also thought that itching is your body’s way of drawing attention to an issue and causing an action (i.e., scratching) to alleviate said issue.
