Ocular allergy: causes and therapeutic options
Ocular allergic eye conditions are among the most common anterior eye problems encountered in optometric practice. There are six common forms of ocular allergy: seasonal allergic conjunctivitis, perennial allergic conjunctivitis, vernal keratoconjunctivitis, atopic keratoconjunctivitis, contact lens associated papillary conjunctivitis and contact ocular allergy. Here, we review the current understanding of the pathophysiology underlying ocular allergic conditions and describe the different causes and forms of allergic eye disease and different treatment options.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
