Introduction

Conjunctivitis allergic, also known as allergic conjunctivitis, is an inflammation of the conjunctiva, the thin layer of tissue that covers the white part of the eye and the inner surface of the eyelids. It is a common condition that occurs when the eyes react to allergens, such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or certain medications. The aim of this guide is to provide a comprehensive overview of conjunctivitis allergic, including its symptoms, causes, diagnostic steps, possible interventions, and patient education.

Codes

– ICPC-2 Code: F71 Conjunctivitis allergic
– ICD-10 Code: H10.1 Acute atopic conjunctivitis

Symptoms

  • Redness of the eyes: The eyes may appear red or bloodshot.
  • Itching or burning sensation: The eyes may feel itchy or like they are burning.
  • Watery eyes: Excessive tearing or watering of the eyes.
  • Swelling of the eyelids: The eyelids may become swollen or puffy.
  • Sensitivity to light: Increased sensitivity to light, also known as photophobia.
  • Stringy discharge: A clear, stringy discharge from the eyes.
  • Blurred vision: Vision may become temporarily blurred.

Causes

  • Allergens: Exposure to allergens, such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or certain medications, can trigger an allergic reaction in the eyes.
  • Seasonal factors: Allergic conjunctivitis may be more common during certain seasons, such as spring or fall, when there is a higher concentration of allergens in the air.
  • Environmental factors: Exposure to irritants, such as smoke, pollution, or chemicals, can also contribute to allergic conjunctivitis.

Diagnostic Steps

Medical History

  • Gather information about the patient’s symptoms, including the duration and severity of the symptoms.
  • Ask about any known allergies or previous episodes of allergic conjunctivitis.
  • Inquire about any recent exposure to potential allergens or irritants.
  • Assess the impact of the symptoms on the patient’s daily activities and quality of life.

Physical Examination

  • Inspect the eyes for redness, swelling, or discharge.
  • Assess visual acuity and perform a basic eye examination.
  • Check for any signs of other eye conditions or complications.

Laboratory Tests

  • There are no specific laboratory tests for diagnosing allergic conjunctivitis.
  • In some cases, a swab of the conjunctiva may be taken to rule out other possible causes of conjunctivitis, such as bacterial or viral infections.

Diagnostic Imaging

  • Diagnostic imaging is not typically necessary for the diagnosis of allergic conjunctivitis.

Other Tests

  • Allergy testing: In some cases, allergy testing may be recommended to identify specific allergens that trigger the allergic reaction in the eyes.

Follow-up and Patient Education

  • Schedule a follow-up appointment to monitor the patient’s progress and adjust the treatment plan if necessary.
  • Provide patient education on how to manage and prevent allergic conjunctivitis, including avoiding allergens, practicing good eye hygiene, and using appropriate medications.
