Optilast eye drop solution provides quick relief from allergic conjunctivitis, the allergy symptoms which affect the eyes. This includes puffy, itchy and watery eyes. Its active ingredient is an antihistamine called azelastine hydrochloride.
The eye contains a certain group of cells called mast cells. Mast cells are responsible for the eye’s immune response to foreign particles. They react to allergens by releasing substances called histamines, which causes the eyes to become watery and inflamed. The most common allergens are pollen, animal fur, and dust mites. Azelastine hydrochloride prevents these cells from releasing histamine, which reduces the associated inflammation.
