Optilast Eye Drops are a form of antihistamine medication that help prevent and treat allergic symptoms such as red, watery and itchy eyes.
Optilast Eye Drops are used to treat ophthalmic symptoms due to hay fever and other allergic responses.
Optilast eye drops contain the active ingredient azelastine hydrochloride, which is an antihistamine medicine. Antihistamines help prevent the actions of histamines in the body – a chemical that is released when a foreign particle or allergen enters the body.
When the eye drops are administered into the eyes, they work by blocking the histamine receptors inside the eyes. This stops the chain reaction and relieves the allergic symptoms as quickly as 3 minutes.
Optilast Eye Drops help relieve allergy symptoms such as:
Itching of the eyes
Put one drop of the Optilast Eye Drops into each eye, twice a day. You may increase this dosage to four times per day if this dose is ineffective for your condition.
