What is the best allergy treatment for eyes I mean the best eye drops for allergy. Not over-the-counter drugs. Oral antihistamine alone not helping.

In brief: Patanol (olopatadine)

I prefer patanol (olopatadine) drops.
There are others which are similar. The important thing is to wash your face with a cool wash cloth before applying to remove any lingering allergens from your facial skin and around your eyes. This helps my patients a great deal. If you're not better with drops see an allergist for testing, you may want to consider allergy shots.

In brief: Allergy eye drops

There are many good choices like Pataday, Lastacaft, (alcaftadine) Bepreve, Elestat, Optivar, and Zaditor to name a few.
Any of these can be helpful. I often prescribe Pataday first, but you should discuss with your Allergist or ENT doctor.
