what to use for allergic conjunctivitis
Patients often ask what to use for allergic conjunctivitis.
OTC antihistamine and decongestant eyedrops (Naphcon-A, etc) are good for short-term or intermittent symptoms. They're inexpensive and work fast...but have to be used QID.
Rx antihistamines (Emadine, Livostin) cost more. But they can be used for longer periods because they don't contain a decongestant.
