Allergies: The Unbearable Sniffing, Sneezing and Drainage

My name is Marilyn Baker, and I have horrible allergies. I’m 42 years old and have been suffering from allergies since I was a child. I have seasonal and environmental allergies. Allergies plague me year round. When I was young, my parents even moved to a dryer area in the hope of helping me. Over the past eight years, I have done extensive research both through doctors and online. I have managed to come up with some combinations that have helped me a great deal. My allergies aren’t gone, but they have become manageable. I do have to have allergy shots, but I also use some natural remedies. I am happy to be able to share my findings with you here on my blog. I hope you can find some of this of value.

Are You Dealing With These Common Eye Conditions?

by Clifton Davidson

Eye conditions can be among the most difficult to deal with. Not only can they be debilitating, but they can also be extremely frustrating. After all, your eyes are one of the most important parts of your body, and when they're not working properly, it can be tough to get through the day.

There are a variety of different eye conditions that can affect people of all ages, and it's important to be aware of them. Here are some of the most common eye conditions.

Refractive Errors

Refractive errors are the conditions that require people to wear glasses, wear contact lenses, or undergo LASIK surgery. Myopia, or nearsightedness, is the most common refractive error. People with myopia can see nearby objects clearly, but distant objects appear blurry.

Hyperopia, or farsightedness, is the second most common refractive error. People with hyperopia can see distant objects clearly, but nearby objects appear blurry.

Astigmatism is the third most common refractive error. People with astigmatism have an irregularly shaped cornea, which prevents light from focusing properly on the retina.

Diabetic Retinopathy 

Diabetic retinopathy is a condition that causes damage to the blood vessels in and around the eye. It can occur in people with either type of diabetes. Diabetic retinopathy can lead to vision loss or even blindness if it's not treated.

Dry Eyes

Dry eyes are not always an indication that you have something in your eyes. It can also be a symptom of an underlying condition. Dry eyes can be extremely irritating and can cause a burning or itching sensation.


A cataract is a clouding of the lens of your eye. Cataracts can cause blurry vision and make it difficult to see. Cataracts are usually treated with surgery to remove the lens and replace it with an artificial one.


Glaucoma is a condition that damages the optic nerve. The optic nerve is responsible for sending signals from your eye to your brain. When it's damaged, it can cause vision loss. Treatment may require eye drops or surgery depending on the severity of the condition.

How to Get Treatment for Eye Conditions

If you think you may have any of these conditions, it's important to see an eye doctor as soon as possible. They will be able to diagnose the condition and recommend treatment. Treatment will vary depending on the condition, but it may include glasses, contact lenses, eye drops, or surgery. They can also suggest some eye care tips.
