Alternate Names : Atopic Conjunctivitis, Hay Fever Conjunctivitis

Allergic Conjunctivitis | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

How is the condition diagnosed?

People often think they have allergic conjunctivitis because their eyes are red, itchy or watery. These are also symptoms of hay fever. In more complex cases, the doctor uses a microscope to find signs of an allergy. Tiny bumps on the white part of the eye indicate that an allergy is present. This distinguishes it from bacterial or viral conjunctivitis.
