I have had horribly itchy eyes for months now. I even had to go to the ER one morning because I felt like I might scratch my eyes out it was so bad! Both the dr and I assumed it was allergies & I have a presription for allergy eye drops, but I can't use them as often as I need to. I am afraid now that it might be something else.
Should I see a general practitioner or go straight to the eye doctor?

While your waiting to see your regular Doctor you could also try an oral anti-histimine like Claritin, Allegra or Zyrtec and treat the allergy systemically as well. Then Start using the drops as directed - they aren't going to help if you don't follow the instructions!
That is usually the only allergy symptom I get (mild, yet annoying) and the Allegra or Claritin works great for me.
