What is the treatment for ocular allergy?

Answer: 

It's firstly important to avoid or eliminate the allergen (the cause of the allergy, e.g. pollen), particularly for those with allergic conjunctivitis.

If this isn't possible, some allergies can be soothed with cool compresses and artificial tears, while over the counter antihistamines can be helpful too.

If none of these methods work or symptoms are severe you should visit your optician or GP.
