Overview

If your eyes itch and are red, tearing or burning, you may have eye allergies (allergic conjunctivitis), a condition that affects millions of Americans. Many people will treat their nasal allergy symptoms but ignore their itchy, red, watery eyes.

Symptoms can occur independently but usually accompany the sneezing, sniffling or stuffy nose related to nasal allergies.
