Hay fever is actually the wrong term for this time of year. But yes, allergies are very bad this fall. My allergies have been working overtime majorly! Including eye irritation. You can do a few things to help your eyes feel better. You can try using otc allergy eye drops such as Clariten eye drops, or take an otc allergy med such as Zyrtec, Allegra or Clariten - try to avoid the "D's" (Clariten-D, Allegra-D etc) because they can dry the eye out too much. Also artificial tears can help by flushing the irritants out of the eyes. I prefer Systane.
I hope you feel better soon!
