For severe, sudden complaints
In the case of allergies, mast cells increasingly release the inflammatory messenger substance histamine and thus trigger an immune reaction. The well-tolerated active ingredient azelastine hydrochloride has a threefold effect against the symptoms: it inhibits the histamine receptors and reduces allergic symptoms such as B. Itching or redness of the eyes. At the same time, the mast cells are stabilized and the release of histamine is reduced. In addition, azelastine is anti-inflammatory. 2

* Shelf life 24 months. Each drip container should only be used once and should be discarded after use.
Carefully separate a single-dose container from the strip (Figure 1). Twist (do not pull) off the cap (Figure 2). Tilt your head back. Gently pull the lower eyelid down. Carefully place a drop in the center of the lower eyelid. Be careful not to touch the eye with the dropper to avoid contamination of the dropper (Figure 3). Let go of your lower eyelid and gently press the inner corner of your eye against the bridge of your nose. Keeping your finger pressed against your nose, slowly blink your eyes a few times to spread the drop over the surface of the eye.
Remove contact lenses before dropping and insert them again after 15 minutes.
Hypersensitivity to flower and grass pollen often results in puffy, reddened or itchy eyes. Vividrin ® Azelastin EDO ® can have a long-lasting and reliable effect on acute symptoms within a few minutes without making you tired 3 .
Countless triggers cause problems for the sensitive conjunctiva: allergies to house dust mites, animal hair or mold spores cause unpleasant symptoms such as burning and itching. An antiallergic agent such as Vividrin ® Azelastin EDO ® can combat the symptoms effectively and quickly.
CONTACT LENS CARRIER
In principle, in the case of allergic conjunctivitis, the ophthalmologist should be asked whether contact lenses can still be worn. If this is permitted, hard and soft contact lenses are to be removed before the dropping and put back at least 15 minutes afterwards.
Children are also often affected by allergic conjunctivitis. Due to their good tolerance and quick effect, Vividrin ® Azelastin EDO ® are suitable for children from 4 years of age in the case of seasonal allergies 3 .
