Hayfever Strikes Melbourne – How Optical World can ease your suffering


This Spring many Melbournians are sneezing, itching and sniffling their way through the season, with an increase in airborne grass pollen across the city and surrounds. For many hayfever sufferers Spring has hit with a vengeance with many people complaining of itchy, runny noses, tiredness and sore, red, irritated eyes. Hayfever symptoms can greatly impact your day and having to deal with watery and irritated eyes doesn’t help in the slightest.


At Optical World we still BULK BILL our eye tests and welcome any customer that seeks professional advice on how to relieve their hayfever symptoms. Both Optical World stores carry a wide range of medicated eye drops that can offer some relief this Spring. We also recommend that on high pollen count days to remain indoors as much as possible, and if you are a regular contact lens wearer to try switching to wearing spectacles to avoid allergens accumulating under the lens. Alternatively you can speak to one of our Optometrists about switching to daily disposable contact lenses that may relieve some of your symptoms.


At Optical World we offer all our customers a FREE Trial Pair of Contact Lenses, so speak to one of our friendly staff members to find out more.
