    How to approach the management of seasonal allergies


    New diagnostic tool

    Dr. Donnenfeld said a new point-of-service testing option that identifies a patient’s allergy is available through Doctor’s Allergy Formula (Bausch & Lomb). This in-office device takes about 3 minutes to use, with results in 15 minutes. It uses a panel of 60 allergens that are specific to each region of the country.

    With findings such as these in hand, ophthalmologists can be certain of their diagnosis, as well as help patients maximize the effectiveness of any medications they use. For example, someone who is allergic to pollen might want to dose before going outside. Someone who is allergic to dust mites might be advised to do it before going to bed.
