Itchy Eyes? Meet the Invisible Enemies

Did you know that allergens are on the attack morning, noon and night, and that the itch can last 24 hours? Pollen, ragweed, and grass are the triggers we might think of first. But you don't have to set foot outdoors to have your day ruined by itchy allergy eyes. Pet dander and animal hair are among the most common indoor allergens. That's why there's Pataday.

Pataday is made to relieve the eye allergy itch caused by these everyday culprits-both indoors and out. Each of our three Pataday products contain a full prescription strength olopatadine formula and are available without a prescription. Olopatadine was previously the #1 prescribed eye allergy itch relief active ingredient.

How Does Pataday Work

Those allergens that attack morning, noon and night invade the mast cells in your eye, causing the release of histamines that create the itch. A single drop of Pataday stabilizes these mast cells and prevents the release of histamines.

Pataday also blocks histamines that have already been released from attaching to the histamine (H1) receptors in the eye, breaking the chain of allergic reaction.

Stabilize and block: the one-two Pataday punch works fast to keep those histamines in check and give you eye allergy itch relief that lasts.

What Makes the Pataday Family of Products Unique?

Over 40 million prescriptions for olopatadine - the #1 doctor-prescribed eye allergy itch relief ingredient and the active ingredient in each Pataday product - have been written since 2008. Each drop of Pataday still has its full prescription strength olopatadine formula, but prescriptions are no longer needed.
