Patient Comments: Eye Allergy - Treatments

What treatment do you use for your eye allergies or allergic eye disease?

Published: March 04

When they are just beginning to bother me more I use a prescription eye drop called Optivar which helps a lot. When my eyes are severely affected I have had a Kenalog injection which helped a great deal. Then I go to my allergist. I think a good allergist helps the most.

I have been having problems with my eyes. I went to see the eye doctor and all he said was you have long eye lashes it felt like something was in my eyes. He said he saw nothing, he gave me some eye drops that did help and the problem was temporarily solved, but not long. I called him back last week which was on 11/08/2012 and told him the problem is still there he called me in more eye drop which is called Chloram-D which is working.
