The symptoms you describe of redness
, itching and dryness can have a few causes mainly dry eyes
or Xerosis, allergic or vernal catarrh or blepharitis
which is an infection along your lid margins. You are using lubricating drops but the frequency of instillation and duration of usage are important. The fact that you have a history of allergy
is also significant because allergy does often spread to the eye area and may start anytime. The itching in both eyes strongly leans towards this diagnosis. If you have an infection along the lid margins, you may observe white, flaky material on the eyelashes and an oily feel in your eyes that clears when you rub them and comes back again really quickly. The treatment to tackle most of these complaints is to start an eye drop
regime that reduces itching like Cromolyn sodium 4 times a day and a Ketorolac
eye drop 3 times a day for a week. Keep the wetting drop dosage on and leave 2 minutes between installation of each eye drop. At night you could use a mild eye antibiotic ointment on the lid margin if there is any lid infection. Keeping this on for a week resolves the problem in most cases.
