Managing ocular allergy in optometric practice

Paramdeep Singh Bilkhu MCOptom

Prevalence of ocular allergy is reported to be approximately 8% among those attending optometrists, but it is likely to be higher due to underdiagnosis as a result of seasonal ocular allergies being conflated with hay fever symptoms.
