Itchy eyes: You can try over the counter zaditor (ketotifen) eye drops and if they don't work, you need to see an allergist for other eye drops and treatment of your allergies, as controlling allergic nasal symptoms can aid in controlling ocular symptoms.

Ocular allergies: Otc zaditor (ketotifen) (or generic equivalent) is often helpful in covering the allergy symptoms. In severe cases a short course of steroids under supervision of a physician can be helpful. The other option is to desensitize to the allergen. Skin testing to determine the allergen and then use weekly scit or daily slit therapy http://www.Enttoday.Org/details/article/498209/slit_vs_scit_a_qa.Html.
