Dr. PG :

hi

Dr. PG :

the most probable cause in your daughter's case seems to be eye allergy

Dr. PG :

Children who are prone to allergies have sensitive eyes

Dr. PG :

there can be variable symptoms like watering, itching, redness of eyes or senstivity to light

Dr. PG :

ideally she needs to be evaluated by an Ophthalmologist

Dr. PG :

but in the meantime you can use anti-allergy eye drops like zaditor/naphco-A

Dr. PG :

these are avilable over the counter

Dr. PG :

also if possible she should use dark glasses or goggles while going out to minimize exposure to allergen
