OTC allergy eye drops


Now’s the time of year for allergy eyes.  If you’re looking for some OTC relief, you’re in luck.  There are good OTC allergy eye drops, though it seems that many people aren’t familiar with them.  Look for drops containing the active ingredient ketotifen.  It’s found in Alaway and Zyrtec eye drops.  I recommend avoiding drops with tetrahydrozoline or naphthazoline. These are “get the red out” medications and can cause some rebound problems if used too much.  Sort of like Afrin for the eyes.

Hope this helps.
