What happens if you use an ophthalmic antihistamine when you don't have allergic conjunctivitis at the moment?

In brief: Nothing

It's ok, has minimal side effects, and may be preventative.

In brief: May help

Topical antihistamine drops sometime may be prophylactic - especially in the midst of allergy season.
We have quite a few known allergic conjunctivitis sufferers start daily drops at the beginning of allergy season and use them throughout.
