Q&A with Dr.Shurminsky

Dr.Shurminsky Answers Your Eye Care Questions

What would you prescribe for the itching and burning associated with Eye Allergies?

Eyedrops frequently prescribed for eye allergies contain olopatadinehydrochloride, an ingredient that can effectively relieve symptoms associated with an allergic reaction. I usually will use one of the RXdrops like Lastacaft or Pataday and I instruct patients to use these as aprophylactic measure during allergy season.
