Useful tips for dealing with hay fever

Allergy season is nearing. You may be having difficulty finding effective remedies to help control your hay fever, but you can make a difference this year! There are several simple things you can do to avoid sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, and runny noses this season. Here are the useful tips that you can practice to deal with hay fever:

Apply some eyewash to your eyes.

  • You may buy eye wash kits, which generally include an eye sensitive solution and a specific cup for holding the washing solution over your eye. You can also cleanse your eyes with clean water. To clean the outside of your eye, you can also use disposable eye wipes. 

Keep hydrated

  • When your nasal passages are dry, your nose becomes itchy, and your throat becomes scratchy. Drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water each day will substantially lessen allergy-related symptoms in your throat and nasal passages. Remember to hydrate by keeping a water bottle at your workplace, in your handbag, and in your car.

Take a shower everyday

  • You should take a shower at the end of each day before curling up and relaxing. This guarantees that all pollen and irritants are eliminated from your body. It's easy, yet it's one of the most effective things you can do.

Wear daily contact lenses

  • If you wear contact lenses, it may be a good idea to change to daily disposables rather than monthly contact lenses. By just wearing each pair of lenses for a single day, you can be confident that you're putting in a new set and that any residual pollen won't cause you any discomfort. You will also be able to replace them whenever you start to feel a build-up or irritation.
To purchase contact lenses, you can order online through or if you just nearby Petaling Jaya area you can drop by to our shop at Malaya Optical Optometrist
