Stronger eyedrops: You may need a stronger drop, maybe even a mild steroid, if this is allergies. It may also be blepharitis, which involves the eyelids and lashes. Check out http://www.2020vision.Com/blepharitis.Html.

Other symptoms?: Zaditor (ketotifen) is a topical antihistamine, often useful for eye allergies. Whitish discharge in the am could be mucous from allergies or irritation. See your ophthalmologist.
