Fall Allergies

Posted by CooperVision on Thursday, October 6, 2011
Millions of Americans suffer from seasonal allergies and many experience allergy symptoms in their eyes, including itching, tearing and redness. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America recently released their annual study of the top US cities identified as the worst fall allergy hotspots. The rankings are determined by analyzing three factors including pollen scores, the number of allergy medications used, and the number of allergy specialists in the area. Knoxville, Tennessee takes the #1 spot for 2011. For more information and to see if your city makes the list, click here.

For contact lens wearers, allergy season can be a frustrating time. 1 Day lenses are a great solution to help reduce allergy symptoms - a fresh lens is used every morning and disposed of at night, so the accumulation of allergens on the lens is reduced, meaning a more comfortable wearing experience for you.

Proclear 1 Day lenses are the only daily disposable contact lenses with FDA clearance for the claim: "may provide improved comfort for contact lens wearers who experience mild discomfort or symptoms relating to dryness during lens wear." If you live in one of the top 100 cities for 2011 fall allergies or suffer from seasonal allergies, talk to your eye care provider about Proclear 1 Day. Try them for free* with this free trial offer and start to enjoy fall! For more information on contact lenses and allergies, click here.

Springtime is officially here! Spring means warmer weather, longer days, and the on-set of seasonal allergens like pollen. Millions of Americans suffer from seasonal allergies and many experience allergy symptoms in their eyes, including itching, tearing and redness. For contact lens wearers, this time of year can be extremely frustrating. 

1 Day lenses are a great solution to help reduce allergy symptoms for contact lens wearers. Since a fresh lens is used every morning and disposed of each night, the accumulation of allergens on the lens surface is reduced. This ensures a comfortable wearing experience all day, every day.
