Experts say cold winter followed by a sudden warming has boosted pollen counts to near-record highs.  Unfortunately the same weather system that brought the warm air is blocking the rain from coming in and knocking down the pollen count.

Allergies don’t need to keep you inside.  The key is to limit the contact of allergens with your eyes.  While running or biking, particles fly at your face.  Your eyes are very sensitive so it’s important to protect them with Purifier® polarized sunglasses from Dr. Tavel.  Sunglasses create a barrier between your eyes and the surrounding air, reducing the amount of allergens that affect your eyes.

Health Day has several other tips for allergy sufferers:

  • Avoid going outside in the morning hours because pollen is much worse then.
  • Keep your windows closed and run your air conditioner.  Make sure the filters for your air condition are clean.
  • Use the air conditioning in your car to filter the air.
  • If you have to do yard work, wear a mask to help cut down on the amount of pollen you’ll breathe in.

Check the pollen count in your area by visiting the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
