Yes: There are over the counter allergy drops and prescription ones as well! all work well to reduce or eliminate the four cardinal signs of ocular allergy - itching, redness, tearing and swelling. Most do not work quickly but all cause the eye to respond less to allergens. There are also mild steroid drops for those with severe allergies. These can be used together for added speed and effect.
