TAMPA BAY, Fla. — As allergies are picking up in the Tampa Bay area, it's becoming harder to treat yourself. Over-the-counter eye drops are becoming hard to find.
ABC Action News found bare shelves at several different chain stores across the Tampa area.
Dr. Rima Sanka with Advanced Allergy and Asthma Care said it is not just over-the-counter drops, but some prescription drops are out of stock too.

For those who need immediate relief, a doctors visit to find a proper treatment may be imperative.
However, if you have mild symptoms, you can call around to different stores to see when their next shipments are expected.
Dr. Sanka suggests prevention -- a phrase called, "tricking the trees."
Although, the season is extremely busy, Dr. Sanka said she's able to still make appointments.
