The ocular allergic response: A pharmacotherapeutic review (PDF)


One of the most common ophthalmic conditions that directs a patient to a primary-care physician or eye-care practitioner is the red, itchy eye. The highest percentage of conjunctivitis is noninfectious or inflammatory, and frequently these cases are allergic in nature. The ophthalmic armamentarium is now filled with a number of pharmaceutical compounds that act specifically at different points along the inflammatory cascade. Formulary decision-making should be based on sound knowledge of the ocular inflammatory cascade and the pathways through which the various ophthalmic antiallergic preparations exert their anti-inflammatory effects.
