Ocular Allergy Clinic Now Open at Our 7 Mile Location

Allergies are your body’s natural response when you’re exposed to certain substances called allergens. Red, itchy, watery eyes are the distinctive signs and symptoms of eye allergies. GRO now offers testing to rule out allergies when differentiating between other conditions such as dry eyes and blepharitis (a common condition that causes inflammation of the eyelids), which can have similar symptoms. The results of this testing allow us to specifically treat your particular condition. GRO’s Ocular Allergy Clinic is offered at the 7 Mile location. If you think you have eye allergies, call us today to schedule an appointment.
