Patanol (olopatadine) eye drops: You could be allergic to patanol (olopatadine). Don't use it. Try clear eye drops. If not, consult your ophthalmologist.

Itchy?: Are you using this for itchy eye and not burning eye? Try putting the Patanol (olopatadine) in the refrigerator and see it it will reduce the initial burning. Otherwise there are several other options. Just ask your doctor about them.

No: Patanol (olopatadine) is usually a very comfortable drop with instillation. You may have a bad bottle or something else wrong with your eye.
