I am constantly suffering from eye allergy. In summers mostly I have to use anti allergy(histazoline eye drops). Is there any permanent cure of this?
Yes: The best treatment is to see an allergist for specific treatment. Nasal sprays and allergy shots can work to cure this problem much better than applying a bandaid like an eye drop. Oral antihistamines can also help to decrease itching if this is a problem. Histazolin uses a vasoconstrictor, like visine, which is not a good treatment for eye allergy. Zaditor (ketotifen) is better for otc use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
