My child has an allergic tendency, with constant itching of the eyes and occasional watering and redness. I have tried all drops and every doctor in my town.. the moment I stop the drops, the problem recurs!

This is a very common problem in India. For “Allergic Conjunctivitis” avoid doctor shopping! Understand there is no magic cure. However, most children outgrow the disease with time.. may take a few years. There are many non-steroidal eye drops that work in a majority of cases. It is important to use steroid drops as sparingly as possible and under strict supervision by your doctor. Many a time, the allergic conjunctivitis may leave no permanent defect in the eye, but abuse of steroids can cause cataract, glaucoma, corneal infections and even blindness!
