In February 1999, I had been experiencing irritation, watering, and burning of my eyes. In the morning the discomfort was unbearable it felt like I had a pound of sand in my eyes. They became very sensitive to perfumes.
I spoke with Dr. Winer regarding my symptoms. He then asked me what type of pillow I used. He then stated that I was allergic to the down feathers in my pillow.
That evening I slept on a regular form pillow and the following morning my symptoms were completely gone.
