My itchy eyes

im 12,and yesterday when i woke up my eyes were terribly itchy.I have allergies but never have had eye allergies.I looked it up,and i dont have symptoms of pink eye but they are so itchy and burn like a bunch of needles poking my eye.Today however,after trying a bunch of treatment and eyedrops,they are even worse!It hurts especially in the corner of my eye.And im not allergic to any pets and no one has had pink eye or a cold recently in my family or at school.Im going to a doctor today,and hopefully they will figure it out and give me medication that will actually work!I cant imagine having eye allergies for the rest of my life i have hade them for 2 days and it driving me crazy!!And ive never had any problems with eye allergies and i dont have bad vision...????

My Itchy Eyes

My eyes have been itching for the last month or so. At first I thought it was dry eyes, but then went to my doctor and was diagnosed with my allergies causing the itchy eyes. Tried a prescription eye drop from the doctor, but no relief. I know I'm allergic to ragweed, but it's now November and you would think ragweed would be gone. However for Ohio this has been a very unusual year.
