A lot of people like spring but at the same time an equal amount of people hate it. The reason for this is that spring is also allergy season and a lot of people are actually affected by it. To a lot of people, spring is actually a very annoying period as it causes them to sneeze excessively, always have clogged and runny noses, and, worst of all, itchy and red eyes. In fact, the eye problem is often known as allergic conjunctivitis and is possibly one of the most annoying things that can happen to people who have severe allergic reactions during this period. Sneezing a lot is annoying and having a clogged and runny nose will require you to carry tissues everywhere. However, itchy and red eyes are a problem that has no real solution that you can do. Fortunately, there are medications that can be taken to help relieve this problem and one of the most effective solutions is Optilast Eye Drops.

Optilast Eye Drops is one of the most effective treatments for allergic conjunctivitis as its active ingredient is Azelastine hydrochloride. It actually inhibits the allergic reaction so as to prevent the problem from ever happening. When a person is exposed to things that they are allergic to the body reacts by releasing mast cells which then triggers the allergic response. Because of this, the body will release other chemicals that dilate the blood vessels which causes the redness and inflammation. These chemicals are known as histamines and are the major reason why people get allergic reactions. The active ingredient stops the body from releasing histamines. This is why these kinds of drugs are usually known as antihistamines.

As mentioned above, optilast eye drops prevent the body from producing histamines which effectively stops the body from starting an allergic reaction. Since it is in eye drop form, it is specifically targeted to stopping the symptoms of allergic reactions in that area. This means that all the symptoms that a person feels in their eye area will be relieved when using the medication.

As this medication is in eye drop form, the steps in using it are fairly straight forward. First, you need to thoroughly wash your hands as dirty hands making contact with the eye can simply make the problem worse. It is important to remove your contact lenses if you are wearing one. To keep everything clean and sterile, make sure that the tip of the bottle doesn’t touch anything. Also, be careful when putting the medicine in your eye; make sure that the tip doesn’t accidentally poke your eye as it can cause even more infections or irritations.

Optilast eye drops typically contain 0.05% of the active ingredient Azelastine hydrochloride. It also contains inactive ingredients such as liquid sorbitol, hypromellose, and disodium edetate among other compounds. The recommended usage for the drug is one drop on each eye and is done twice a day. If you feel that this dosage isn’t effective for you, you can increase it to four times a day. Once you feel that the symptoms are subsiding, you can also decrease the amount as needed. Another thing that you need to remember when using the eye drop is that it shouldn’t be used continuously for 6 weeks. Once a bottle has been opened, it can only be used for a month. After that, the bottle needs to be replaced.

One of the biggest things you need to watch out for when using the eye drops is to look for any signs that you might be allergic to it. Since it is a medication that is supposed to treat allergic reactions, there is a chance that it might mask this effect so you need to carefully check your symptoms if they are getting worse or not. The most common side effects felt is a slight stinging sensation in the eye or slight blurring of vision. This typically appears right after use but usually goes away quickly. If it doesn’t, stop using immediately and seek medical consult.
