About Acupat Opthalmic Solution 5 ml

Acupat Opthalmic Solution 5 ml belongs to the ophthalmic eye medications, primarily used to treat allergic eye disease. Allergic eye disease is the inflammation that occurs in the eyes due to any allergy. Various materials may be responsible for causing this inflammation. These are known as allergens. Pollen is one of the common seasonal allergens. If you have an allergic eye disease, your eyes may experience irritation or have watery, red eyes. You may also have swelling of eyelids and conjunctiva (inner surface of eyelids).

Acupat Opthalmic Solution 5 ml contains two medicines: Ketorolac and Olopatadine. Ketorolac is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) that is a painkiller. It works by blocking the release of several chemical messengers that cause inflammation (redness and swelling), and pain in the eye.  Olopatadine is an antihistamine drug that inhibits the release of histamine from mast cells. Histamines are chemical messengers that are released due to an allergic response in the body. These chemicals are known to cause allergies like runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes.
