Allergies caused a cherry eye to return!

My little snot has allergies. It's been funny to watch her face contort while she is having a sneezing fit. But the other night her cherry eye popped back out! We had surgery on it about 6 months ago and haven't had a problem since. But out it came. But here's the weird part. She was scratching her eye and she somehow pushed it back it! I don't know how but it's back in now and it didn't come back out. I'm going to keep checking on it, but if it doesn't come back out, should I still take her to the vet to have it looked at? I mean, it looks fine so I don't think there is really anything he could do!

The vet can manually palpate the third eyelid and see how easily it proplapses. They can tell you if the problem was incidental or if it is getting worse and requires additional operations. If it is incidental and the eyelid appears normal, your vet will probably tell you to monitor her and if the third eyelid doesn't prolapse again, then you probably having nothing to worry about. If the problem recurs, by all means I'd have her see the doc, preferably an opthamalogist.
If a Cherry Eye recurs it is important to let your veterinarian know.
