The current run of warm, dry and sunny weather is being enjoyed by many.
But if you are one of the 20% of hay fever sufferers in the UK** you probably dread the arrival of Spring because it brings you a host of symptoms, including one that must surely be the most irritating...Yes, I'm talking about itchy eyes.
** NHS statistic
It's already been a bad year for hay fever. It's about to get a whole lot worse
The balmy weather in April and May brought higher birch and oak pollen levels than normal. Sufferers have been experiencing itchy eyes more intensely as a result and more people have been affected.
This week, the pollen forecast shows increasing levels of grass pollen, rising from high to very high by the weekend.
It is allergy to grass pollen that affects most hayfever sufferers. It looks like we're in for a protracted spell of the same warm, dry weather, so this will be reflected in pollen levels that remain acute.
For dry eye sufferers, it's even worse
Also, if, like me, you suffer from dry eyes as well as hayfever, you will be doubly affected at this time of year. That's because when it's hot and sunny, your eyes dry out very fast, especially when you are outdoors.
