Optivar eye drop is indicated for treating itchiness in the eyes caused by hypersensitive reactions (allergic conjunctivitis). It contains Generic Azelastine, an effective antihistamine medication. This drug exerts its action by preventing certain natural chemicals (histamines) in account for hypersensitive symptoms. Histamine is a substance of the immune system that leads to allergy signs. Azelastine ophthalmic solution is indicated to treat irritated eyes caused by other hypersensitive reactions such as hay fever. This eye drop works fast, and treats prickly eyes in just 2 to 3 minutes after applying it and the results persists for 8 hours.

First of all, it is important to wash your hands thoroughly prior to the application of eye drops into your eye(s). Incline your head back and lightly draw your lower eyelid downwards to form a small pouch. You must hold the applicator directly above your eye, look up, and pinch a drop of the eye drops into the eyelid pouch. Then, close your eyes for 1 to 2 minutes and gently press on the inside corner of your eye with a fingertip to stay the drug inside the eye and prevent it from draining out. Remember not to rub your eyes.

DO NOT let the tip of the applicator touch any other surface in order to avoid contamination of your medicine. Wipe the tip with a clean tissue after use and put the cap on strongly.

If you forget a dose of Generic Azelastine eye drops, apply it the moment you memorize. But, if it is approximately time for your subsequent dose, you can leave out the missed dose and return back to your usual dosing timetable. Do not apply double doses at a time.
