If you suffer from these symptoms you may have allergic conjunctivitis. Allergic conjunctivitis occurs when the eye reacts to substances in the environment like pollen. This causes the eye to release histamine which causes the eye to become red, swollen and itchy. Traditionally antihistamines were used to combat the symptoms. New generation medications such as Zaditen and Patanol have a double action of stopping the release of histamine as well as treating the symptoms. Our Optometrists can give you advice about the best way to treat this problem. Always seek the advice from a health care professional before commencing treatment.
