About Pataday®

 

Pataday® temporarily relieves itchy eyes due to pollen, ragweed, grass, animal hair, and dander.

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

There are currently three Pataday® products available without a prescription, each with a different concentration of olopatadine. Pataday® Once Daily Relief Extra Strength (0.7% olopatadine) provides a full 24 hours of eye allergy itch relief. Each Pataday® product provides fast, effective relief that you can feel good recommending. See below for more information on each product to help guide your patients in finding the Pataday® that's right for them.
