How to treat spring catarrh?

Q: I have been suffering from spring catarrh since last 17 years. I have been using eye drops like optihist and also take triz tablets. I also used steroid eye drops like pyrimon when the redness worsens but then I suffer from glaucoma on prolonged use. Is there any treatment for the allergy because it’s affecting my personal and professional life due to the redness in the eyes? Can you suggest some medicines?

A:Spring Catarrh is a chronic allergy that may not be completely ‘cured’ by treatment. It tends to have a seasonal occurrence, and reactivates twice a year during the season change: viz. February-April and September-November. Medication in the form of anti-allergic, lubricants and decongestants tend to control the flare up. Ketotifen drops used twice a day over long periods can be useful.
