Hayfever has become increasingly common in the UK, affecting 1 in 5 people.

Allergy and hayfever eyes result from an allergic reaction. This happens when your immune system (your body's natural defence system) overreacts to a normally harmless substance. These include tree, flower and grass pollens, but also mould and fungal spores, dust mites and animal dander (flakes of animal skin, hair and feathers). These substances are commonly known as allergens.

The active ingredient in Opticrom Allergy Eye Drops, sodium cromoglicate, inhibits the release of histamine and hence relieves symptoms of allergic reaction.

Opticrom Allergy Eye Drops bring fast-acting relief to the symptoms of Allergic Conjunctivitis and can soothe sore, irritated, watery and itchy eyes in as little as two minutes. Always read the label.
