Red, itchy eyes are the result of many factors. If you are suffering from bloodshot red eyes that appear suddenly or over time this could be caused by an allergy. Eye allergies are caused when your immune system produces antibodies to combat allergies. These antibodies release histamine and other allergy fighting substances. As a result your eyes become red and watery and it causes them to itch.
The first benefit of getting allergy testing for your itchy eyes, is to determine what you are allergic to. By identifying those substances that are causing you an allergic reaction, you can learn how to better manage the allergic response. Avoiding the allergens or taking medication to help control symptoms, can alleviate the response of your immune system. As a result you can avoid suffering from itchy eyes caused by an allergic reaction. Through allergy testing, you can also eliminate all allergens, in the instance that your red and itchy eyes are caused by something else, such as environment or stress.
