I've been taking it all summer for allergies and have felt great, but now that fall is here I'm experiencing itchy eyes. I got some allergy eye drops, but that seemed to make it worse. So I was wondering if the Cetirizine actually dries my eyes out and causes them to feel itchy and that maybe I should just start using a moisturizing drop instead?

Cetirizine shouldn't really cause itchy eyes. Yes, you could try lubricating/moisturizing eye drops and see.
If you experience vision problems though, please see your doctor.
