When should I see a doctor about my eye allergies?

ANSWER

If you don’t know what causes your allergy, skin testing by an allergist can help figure it out.

If you still don’t know or you can’t avoid the cause, a doctor who specializes in eye care and surgery -- an ophthalmologist -- may be able to help.
