Sneha Pancholi, store director in Acton, explains: ‘It is very common for hay fever to affect your eyes, and you may find that they become red, sore and itchy.

‘Over-the-counter medications can help relieve symptoms, and ideally you should try and avoid rubbing your eyes if you can as this can make them more painful.
