Others : Zaditor™ is an over the counter, moderately effective ocular antihistamine that may decrease itchy eyeballs. More powerful prescription ocular antihistamines are available. Also, try warm compresses and gentle eyelid hygiene, as blepharitis may be part of your symptom complex. As always, if you're not getting better, a reevaluation is necessary. Sometimes a different medical approach needs a trial
