What is Opticrom Allergy Eye Drops?
Opticrom Allergy Eye Drops is a form of treatment that helps to reduce the effects of an allergic reaction in the eyes. It works thanks to the active ingredient contained in the drops, sodium cromoglicate. Sodium cromoglicate works by reducing the allergic response in the eyes. It is said to work by stabilising immune cells known as mast cells. This is important as mast cells are sensitive to foreign bodies in the immune system.



What causes an allergic reaction?
An allergic reaction is caused by the immune system reaction to what it thinks is a threat. Unlike with a virus, such as a cold or the flu, an allergic reaction is not caused by a harmful substance. Why this happens is unclear, but it is said that people who have a family history of allergies are more like to have an allergy themselves. Another theory is that because the environment is more germ-free than before, the immune system overreacts to certain substances it thinks are harmful. An allergic reaction can affect anyone.



Who are these eye drops suitable for?
These eye drops are suitable to be used by those who are suffering from the effects of an allergy. If you wear contact lenses, then it is recommended that you do not wear them while using this treatment. If you are using any other form of medical treatment, then you should speak to a doctor.



Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this treatment?
Anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding should consult a medical professional for advice before using this eye drops treatment.



How should Opticrom Allergy Eye Drops be used?
Wash your hands before using. To use, tilt your head back and squeeze 1-2 drops of liquid into the lower lid without touching the eye. Then, close the eye and wipe away any excess liquid. Repeat the process in the other eye if needed. Apply 1-2 drops in each eye up to 4 times a day.
