I have got this severe itching in the eye since the past two weeks. Any quick solutions?
If your English is good enuf that you have unilateral ocular itching, I am here to tell you that it is not a seasonal allergy.
Therefore, you should see a doc.
If both eyes are involved, try some of the suggestions that you have received.
Zaditor is an antihistamine prep. It is no better or worse that other ones out there. I suspect that it is much more expensive.
Melissa, not to disagree with you but I’ve had allergies all my life. For years I used an eyedrop called Decadron, which contained steroids and can be damaging. Zaditor is the only other eyedrop that was ever effective in relieving the itching and especially the watery eyes. Everyone is different, and perhaps Visine or something else might work for others, but for me and my oak pollen allergy Zaditor is the only OTC that works.
OTOH if he has blepharitis, he needs to see an opthamologist.
I agree with you. I certainly would not put steroids into my eyes unless a doc was in charge.
My point in mentioning other ocular antihistamines was that another prep might be cheaper than a brand name.
I use a boric acid solution that I prepare myself. My ocular allergies are of minimal irritant value.
