Eye drops are a very quick, convenient and effective way of obtaining relief from hayfever/allergy eye symptoms.
Typical signs and symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis include; redness in BOTH eyes,
itching and burning of both the eye and surrounding tissue,
watery discharge,often accompanied by acute discomfort in bright light(photophobia),
clarity of vision disturbed due to swollen conjunctiva,
swelling of the eyelids,.It is important to check and exclude the prescence of a foreign body.
Eye drops fall into 3 main categories.
A. Antihistamines.Antihistamine eyedrops work by blocking histamine(H1) receptors in the conjunctiva so that the histamine molecule cannot attach and is therefore unable to exert its effects.They should not be used continuously for more than 6 weeks.
B.Mast Cell stabilisers.Mast-cell stabilisers prevent the release of chemical mediators of inflammation from the mast cells.
C. Decongestants.Decongestants take the redness away by shrinking the swollen blood vessels in the conjunctiva. They should only be used for short intervals of up to 5 days at a time.
A few products contain more than one ingredient to provide a combination effect.
If you you have not been diagnosed with allergic conjunctivitis, visit your doctor to confirm your condition. There are several other conditions that look like allergy eye but if left untreated can cause serious damage.
