Hello,

Thank you for the question.

Your symptoms are suggestive of allergic conjunctivitis. It is characterised by itching, redness, ropy discharge. It can be seasonal or perennial. The exact allergen may or may not be known and could be anything from dust to pollen in the air. You can use Alaway/Zaditor eye drops, 1 drop twice a day for 3-4 weeks along with Refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 times a day( both are available over the counter). If symptoms persist despite treatment then it is better to consult your ophthalmologist for start of Pataday eye drops.
