You might be asking yourself –
Do I have Eye Itch?
Well, do you find yourself rubbing your eyes throughout the day? A lot of people do. If you suffer from allergies, it’s likely you experience some level of eye irritation. About 72% of all allergy patients have eye itch.
So, what causes eye allergies?
So, what causes
When people who are prone to allergies come into contact with allergens, their immune system can overreact.
When this happens, immune cells called mast cells release large amounts of histamine, which binds to receptors in tissues, causing them to enlarge or dilate. It's your body's way of fighting off the allergen. But for you, it means your eyes get swollen, watery, itchy, and irritated.
What allergens to watch out for:
And how can
If you take allergy pills, you know how long they can take to kick in, and even then they may not do the trick.
Alaway antihistamine eye drops provide eye itch relief within minutes. Relieving the symptoms right at the source and lasting for up to 12 hours.
It’s all thanks to one active ingredient in Alaway – Ketotifen, which has 3 anti-allergic effects:
- Blocks the histamine (H1) receptors
- Stabilizes the mast cell membrane (to reduce histamine release), and
- Prevents accumulation of eosinophils (which contribute to allergic inflammation)
Sounds complicated, but in short – it relieves your eye itch right where it starts. Alaway is available over the counter. So you don’t have to wait for a doctor to get Rx-strength relief in a single dose.
