THESE ARE THE BEST EYE DROPS I HAVE EVER USED THEY DO NOT BURN YOUR EYES LIKE THE OTHER DROPS I HAVE TRIED. THEY ALSO GIVE YOU INSTANT RELIEF. I HAVE BEEN USING THESE FOR SEVERAL YEARS WITH NO SIDE EFFECTS. I COULD NOT MAKE IT THROUGH THE ALERGY SESION WITHOUT THEM.

Comment:
Patanol/pataday has been borderline effective for me.

Hey Guys. I don't see what the fuss is all about. First of all, I have used this whenever Allergy season begins and it works like a gem. A few days in it goes away and I am fine. As far as expense, it shouldn't cost a dime. You should ask your eye doctor for a sample tiny bottle. I have never paid for one and they last a long time.

Comment:
I experience itchy eyes from airborne allergies. I also have periodic iritis episodes normally treated with steroid drops. While pataday was not prescribed for the iritis, I have found that often if I use pataday immediately upon sensing possible iritis symptoms, that problem doesn't develop.
