Murine hay fever relief eye drops

Hay fever is an allergic response to allergens - particularly pollen - in the air.

Between the months of May and July, the pollen count (the average amount of pollen in the air) is high. Tiny particles of pollen can irritate a membrane on the insides of the eyelids and the back of the eye called the conjunctiva.

In response, the body's immune system fires histamine to attack the foreign substance. This histamine causes inflammation and dilation of the blood vessels, resulting in irritation and inflammation around the eyes.

Symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis include:

  • Itchy eyes
  • Pain or discomfort in and around the eyes
  • Pink or red eye
  • Watery eyes

Allergic conjunctivitis may be present alongside other hay fever symptoms associated with allergic rhinitis, such as sneezing, itchy nose and a sore throat.

Murine hay fever relief eye drops contain an antihistamine called sodium cromoglicate. This ingredient prevents the body from firing histamine, which in turn prevents the symptoms of allergic conjunctivitis from occurring.

It's important to be aware that Murine hay fever relief eye drops only relieve the symptoms in the eyes. You should only use Murine eye drops in the eyes.


How can I prevent allergic conjunctivitis?

Preventing allergic conjunctivitis can be difficult, but there are some ways you can minimise the risk of getting pollen in your eyes.

The simplest solution is to avoid pollen altogether, though this is easier said than done. Staying indoors with doors and windows shut is an effective but not always viable solution.

If you need to go outside while the pollen is high and want to reduce your risk of symptoms, you should protect your eyes from pollen as much as you can. Wearing a hat (such as a baseball cap or sun hat) can prevent pollen from falling into your eyes. Sunglasses, particularly the wrap-around variety, are relatively effective and preventing pollen from getting into your eyes.

It's advisable to keep up to date with the pollen count in your area by regularly checking the weather report.

When used regularly, Murine hay fever relief eye drops are also effective at preventing symptoms from arising. Murine eye drops are available without prescription.

You can buy Murine hay fever relief eye drops online from Prescription Doctor.


How do Murine hay fever relief eye drops work?

Murine hay fever relief eye drops contain an antihistamine called sodium cromoglicate.

Moreover, Murine also works to replenish the tear film, which helps to protect the cornea and remove irritating particles from the eyes.


How do I use Murine eye drops?

If you wear contact lenses, you should remove them before applying Murine eye drops.

Tilt your head back and gently pull your lower eyelid down.

Holding the dropper over your eyeball, slightly squeeze the bottle to dispense 1 or 2 drops into your eye.

Repeat the above steps for your other eye.

Close your eyes for 1 or 2 minutes.

If any excess fluid builds up at the corners of your eyes or runs down your face, simply dab it away with a clean, dry tissue.

Wait at least 15 minutes before reinserting your contact lenses or applying any other eye drops.

Repeat the process 2 or 3 times daily.

If your symptoms do not improve after using Murine hayfever eye drops continuously for 14 days, stop using this medicine and speak to your doctor.

For more information on how to use Murine eye drops, including how frequently you should use them, please read the patient information leaflet which is enclosed with the medicine.
