Early Use of Eye Drops Could Help Hay Fever Sufferers

May 6, 2015

If the first sniff of spring brings with it the misery of itchy, watery eyes then you need to act quickly.

By taking an eye drops product called CATACROM®  Sodium Cromoglicate 2% w/v Eye Drops,  before  the pollen season you may be able to prevent the symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis that are common in hay fever such as redness, watering, itching and puffiness.  

CATACROM® helps prevent allergy symptoms by stabilising the mast cells in the eye, reducing the release of mediators, including histamine, which are the cause of symptoms such as itching, burning, watering and puffiness of the eye.  This mast cell stabilising effect builds up over a period of a few weeks, so that by the time the allergens are in season, the ocular hay fever symptoms will be greatly reduced.

CATACROM® is an eye drop indicated for the relief and treatment of seasonal and perennial allergic conjunctivitis. CATACROM® is also preservative and phosphate-free which is particularly important for anyone who is prone to allergies, as some preservatives may cause additional irritation to the eyes. The drops can also be used with rigid and gas permeable contact lenses and can also be used for children and infants (under supervision of an adult).
