If you are experiencing itchy red eyes that burn or water you may have eye allergies, a condition that affects millions of Americans. Many people treat their other allergies neglecting their eyes. The symptoms can occur alone or accompanied by sneezing, sniffling, or stuffy nose associated with nasal allergies.
