Frequently Asked Questions
Is this the same as Visine?
The active ingredient in allwell eye allergy itch relief is a mast-cell stabilizer for the eye (Olopatadine). Mast cell stabilizers prevent the release of substances that cause eye itching.
The main ingredient in Visine products are a redness-relieving decongestant (Naphazoline or Tetrahydrozoline). These decongestants constrict blood vessles in the eye, which results in a reduction in redness. However, these products can be associated with loss of effectiveness with continued use (ie, tachyphylaxis) and rebound redness upon discontinuation.*
How is olopatadine different than oral allergy medicines?
Olopatadine 0.2% is applied directly to the eye to provide eye allergy itch relief in minutes. Oral medications work throughout the body to relieve allergy symptoms.
Can I use olopatadine with contact lenses
Yes! Remove contact lenses before using olopatadine, then wait at least 10 minutes before reinserting lenses.
How long does olopatadine 0.2% (our medicine) last?
Olopatadine 0.2% provides eye allergy itch relief up to 16 hours.
How does olopatadine work?
olopatadine 0.2% is an ocular mast cell stabalizer that works in two ways.
- It stablizies the mast cells that were triggered when you encountered an allergen. This stabilization prevents them from releasing histamines.
- It blocks histamines from attaching to receptors in the eye, breaking the chain of the allergic reaction.
This results in decreased histmine and less ocular itching.
How do you pronounce olopatadine?
