Hay fever warning: Your itchy eyes could be a sign of another condition – how to tell

Hay fever isn’t usually associated with sensitivity to light or blurred vision and if you are experiencing these symptoms, it could be a sign of blepharitis. 

Also, symptoms are typically worse in the morning according to mayoclinic and itchy eyes caused by hay fever can cause irritation at any time throughout the day. 

The exact cause of blepharitis sins clear but it is associated with seborrheic dermatitis (dandruff of the scalp and eyebrows), clogged oil glands in your eyelids, rosacea (a skin condition characterised by facial renders) and allergies including allergic reactions to eye medications, contact lens solutions or eye makeup. 

Blepharitis symptoms are all to do with itchy, red, swollen eyes and therefore if you are not experiencing any other symptoms like sneezing, having a runny nose or an itchy throat, then it could be a sign of the eye condition rather than hay fever.
