Your Symptoms
The following symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis may seem pretty clear1:
  • Itchy eyes
  • Redness
  • Burning
  • Tearing/watery eyes
  • Puffy/swollen eyelids
These symptoms may appear alone or in combination.

Remember: Don't Rub!
Rubbing or scratching your eyes may make your symptoms worse.2 So if you're suffering from allergic conjunctivitis symptoms, see your healthcare provider about treatments, such as prescription OPTIVAR eye drops, that can help you realize relief from allergy eyes.

OPTIVAR is indicated for the treatment of itching associated with allergic conjunctivitis in patients as young as 3 years of age.

In controlled clinical studies, some patients experienced brief eye burning/stinging, headache, and bitter taste. Less than 1% of patients stopped using OPTIVAR because of these effects. OPTIVAR should not be used if you are sensitive to any of the medication's components.

Available by prescription only. Ask your healthcare professional if OPTIVAR is right for you. Please see full Prescribing Information.
