It’s officially spring, the flowers are blooming, the weather is starting to warm up, and hay fever season is upon us again. We’ve compiled a list of handy products to help you prepare for the high pollen count. If you have an allergic reaction to pollen, spring/summer can be a difficult time. Seasonal allergies are very common; general symptoms include:

  • A runny nose
  • Congested nasal passage
  • Sneezing
  • Watery eyes
  • Itchy nose/throat/eyes
  • Allergic rhinitis

Pollen allergies are very common and are often referred to as seasonal allergies because symptoms usually start in the spring and summer seasons. If you are a contact lens wearer, symptoms can worsen as pollen can get trapped under the lens. Hang in there; Feel Good Contacts have some helpful solutions.

The Eye Doctor Lid Wipes

The Eye Doctor Lid Wipes

The Eye Doctor Lid Wipes were developed by eye care experts The Body Doctor to help maintain daily eyelid hygiene. These preservative-free wipes are perfect for gently cleaning away debris and pollen from the eyelid. These pre-soaked individual sachets are perfect for travel.

The wipes can be used by both babies and adults and are designed for even the most sensitive eyes. The gentle formula works to clean away any dirt from your eyelid and eyelashes, to relieve and soothe the effects of dry eye, MGD, blepharitis and other uncomfortable eye conditions.

Multi-Purpose Contact Lens Solution

Switching to daily disposable contact lenses during the hay fever season can help to minimise symptoms of itchy eyes. Using daily lenses will allow you to remove the daily build-up of pollen accumulated on your lenses, as each pair of lenses are thrown away at the end of the day.

We recommend comfi Daily Disposables, which offer excellent value for money without compromising on comfort and quality.

If you’d prefer to stick to monthly contact lenses, you’ll need a high-performance multi-purpose contact lens solution to keep your contact lenses fresh and clean.

comfi All-in-One contact lens solution will clean, disinfect, rewet and store your monthly and two weekly contact lenses. The solution eliminates the need for you to buy multiple products, saving you money and offering a product that will give your contact lenses all-round care. comfi is also available as a travel pack for when you’re on the move, a one month solution and a triple pack (as pictured), which offers the best value for money.

Designer Sunglasses

Designer Sunglasses

As spring progresses into summer, the sun will begin to show itself more and more. Sunglasses are essential as they protect your eyes from UV rays, and also act as a barrier between floating allergens in the air and your eyes.

Feel Good Contacts stock an incredible range of designer sunglasses. From ultra-modern shades to more classic silhouettes, there’s a style to suit everyone. Luxury is made affordable with such low prices.

It’s difficult to choose from all of our amazing designs, but we’d highly recommend the Ray-Ban RB2140 Original Wayfarer Black 901/58. Ray-Ban is one of the most iconic sunglasses labels globally and is almost instantly recognisable. The signature Ray-Ban logo is embossed in silver on the arms of this model, which features polarised lenses for added protection against heavy UV rays.

comfi Drops

The latest addition to the comfi range, comfi Drops rehydrate your eyes, adding a high dose of moisture, lubricating your eyes and easing dryness and irritation. They contain the highest concentration of sodium hyaluronate (HA), which replicates your natural tears and moisturises your eyes by improving how tears are held on the surface.

Completely contact lens friendly, these eye drops are a highly effective option to protect against factors such as digital screen use and high air conditioning in offices, as well as symptoms of hay fever.

Whether you’re studying or at work, you can keep these eye drops at hand to instantly refresh your eyes. comfi Drops are ideal for contact lens wearers of soft contact lenses and are available in a handy travel-sized 10ml bottle to carry with you wherever you go.

Blink Refreshing Hydrating Eye Mist

Blink Refreshing Hydrating Eye Mist

A great alternative to eye drops is Blink Refreshing Hydrating Eye Mist. Like eye drops, this refreshing mist adds a dose of hydration and relief for dry and irritated eyes. The spray is more convenient for those who have difficulty putting drops directly into their eyes and can be used by contact lens wearers too. The 10ml-sized bottle is perfect for when you are on the go and will fit perfectly into your bag or pocket.

Other hay fever remedies to relieve symptoms include nasal sprays to help a blocked nose and antihistamine tablets, which are anti-inflammatory and can significantly improve symptoms. You can purchase these tablets over the counter at pharmacies. Pocket tissues are also good to have on hand when travelling in case you get a runny nose.

It feels like spring has taken so long to arrive; make sure you’re prepared so you can enjoy it to the fullest with zero hassle. For more help with managing hay fever symptoms, read our article on how to stop itchy eyes for good.
