Intro paragraph for DEX – Allergic Conjunctivitis.

The unmet need in allergic conjunctivitis

Seasonal and perennial allergic conjunctivitis are inflammatory-mediated ocular surface disorders induced by allergens.

Standard of Care:

  • Topical antihistamines and mast cell stabilizers act to reduce the signs and symptoms of the early phase allergic response1.
  • There is evidence that patients with ocular allergies exhibit a persistent late phase response2,3
  • Corticosteroids are effective in treating both signs and symptoms of acute and chronic allergy
  • However, corticosteroids are atypically prescribed due to the ability to abuse and/or overuse the treatment
  • Most common symptoms are itchy, watery, red eyes6
  • Treatment requires frequent administration of eyedrops, and hands touching the face several times per day

Caution statement…
