OLOPATADINE belongs to the 'antihistamine' class of drugs, primarily used to treat signs and symptoms of seasonal allergic conjunctivitis. OLOPATADINE is also used to treat eye itching or redness caused by pollen, ragweed, grass, animal hair, or dander. Allergic conjunctivitis is an inflammation of the conjunctiva (the clear tissue that covers the white part of the eye and the inside of the eyelids) caused by an allergic reaction.
OLOPATADINE contains Olopatadine, which inhibits the release of histamine (chemical messengers released due to an allergic response in the body) from mast cells. Thereby relieves itching, burning, redness, and watering in the eyes caused by allergic conjunctivitis.
Your doctor will advise on how often you need to use OLOPATADINE based on your medical condition. Some common side effects of OLOPATADINE include eye pain, eye irritation, headache, blurred vision, burning/stinging/redness/dryness of the eye, eyelid swelling, and eye discomfort. These side effects do not require medical attention and gradually resolve over time. If any of the side effects persist or worsen, consult a doctor.

Allergic conjunctivitis (eye allergy): Allergic conjunctivitis, also known as eye allergy, is the immune response that occurs when the eye comes in contact with an irritating substance known as an allergen. It is of three types: allergic, infective, and acute/chronic conjunctivitis. Allergens include dust, smoke, dander, mold, or pollen. Eye allergy symptoms include itching, burning sensation, watery eyes, red/pink eyes, scaling around the eyes, and swollen or puffy eyelids. It can be passed from one infected person to another; hence precaution like wearing sunglass or distancing is required in public places.
