The long term study of di sodium cromoglycate eye drops in the treatment of conjunctival allergy


Folia Ophthalmologica Japonica 32(10): 2265-2272
The long term study of di sodium cromoglycate eye drops in the treatment of conjunctival allergy
Cases of vernal catarrh (19) and 6 of allergic conjunctivitis were treated with disodium cromoglycate (DSCG) eye drops for a long period. DSCG eye drops were instilled 4 times/day for 6 to 25 mo., with an average of 16 mo., to investigate effectiveness and safety. The drug was very effective in 9 cases, effective in 13 and fairly effective in 3. A few side-effects of irritation or smarting were observed in patients with aggravated keratitis. There were no abnormal findings in ocular examinations, intra-ocular pressure tests, hematological tests, liver and renal function tests or urinalyses. DSCG eye drops were confirmed effective and safe in the long-term treatment of conjunctival allergy of mild and moderate severity.
