I came across the AL article about Eye Allergies.

http://www.allergicliving.com/features.asp?copy_id=389

On page 2 of this article it suggests using nasal spray either a nasal corticosteroid spray such as Avamys or a saline nasal sprays to help to lubricate the nose and flush out pollens, which can help reduce eye symptoms. I assume the first is prescription and the second is OTC.

Has anyone ever tried this - specifically if eye symptoms are the more severe symptom you suffer from -- and did it work? How long after using it before there is noticable improvement in the eyes?

My son hates eye drops. He'd rather suffer with eyes so swollen he can't even open them. I give him oral antihistamines -- but sometimes it seems he needs them for so long. I'm not sure how he'd feel about either of these nasal sprays.
