  • Allergies can come at any age. If you hold him be sure to hold only on your lap or low on your waist in standing to keep away from your eyes. Claritan has new eyedrops for allergies - look into that but be careful if you have glaucoma or high blood pressure the precautions could say don't take.

  • Could be the weather, too. Dry air irritates eyes. Get a home humidifier.
