Alomide eye drops are made up of lodoxamide, an ophthalmic antihistamine and decongestant. This medication is available in 0.10% and comes in a white bottle.
Alomide is used to treat allergy symptoms in the eye. Some of these symptoms include burning, itching, and swelling. More specifically, it treats vernal keratoconjunctivitis, vernal conjunctivitis and vernal keratitis.
Alomide works by reducing the release of the antibody called immunoglobin (IgE). IgEs are what causes your body to have allergic reactions. When IgEs are reduced, so are the symptoms of allergic reactions.
