Allergic conjunctivitis is inflammation of the conjunctiva, which is the inner lining of the eyelids and sclera of the eye (white part of the eye). It is caused by an allergic reaction to allergens such as pollen, animal dander or house dust mites with symptoms including swollen red eyes, itching and eye watering.
Antihistamine eye drops
Eye drops containing the antihistamine olopatadine, can be used to relieve symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis. Olopatadine works by binding to the H1 receptor on the conjunctival cells in the eye and this blocks the action of histamine, which is released by mast cells during an allergic reaction and is responsible for most of the symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis.
