Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

As per your symptoms, I could understand that you are suffering from allergic conjunctivitis. It is a common problem in people with allergies of nose and lungs. I would prescribe Olopatadine eye drops, one drop four times a day. Artificial eye drops one drop four times a day for two weeks to my patients. If the symptoms do not resolve, I would prescribe Loteprednol eye drops under close monitoring of intraocular pressure. I advise frequent follow-ups if Loteprednol is prescribed because it has some side effects. Also, consultation with ENT specialist is recommended to rule out allergies of nose and sinuses.
