Lecrolyn (Lecrolin) eye drops - is an antihistamine drug based on sodium cromoglycate for topical application in ophthalmology, used to stop allergic conjunctivitis and keratitis. The drug is suitable for long-term use, does not cause complications and side effects.
Cromoglycic acid refers to substances whose action is directed to the stabilization of mast cell membranes and the inhibition of the release of histamine and other biologically active substances responsible for the development of allergic reactions. The drug has no effect on the already released histamine, but it suppresses the functional activity of mast cells and a number of other cells involved in the formation of the inflammation reaction and prevents the development of allergic reactions.
In connection with the peculiarity of pharmacological action of cromoglycic acid, Lecrolyn gives the most pronounced anti-allergic effect in the prevention of allergic eye diseases. Optimal is the appointment of Lecrolin for the prevention of seasonal allergic diseases (hay fever, springkerakonkonjunctivitis). For this purpose, the drug should be administered approximately two weeks before the predicted contact with the pollen allergen. If the allergen is known, you should focus on the flowering calendar of plants in a specific area.
The use of Lecrolyn in most cases avoids the use of corticosteroids or significantly reduces their dose and duration of application, reducing the risk of complications of such therapy.
Eye drops Lecrolyn completely eliminate or significantly reduce the severity of such symptoms as burning, itching, conjunctival hyperemia, eye discomfort, photophobia, etc. In addition, the drug reduces the permeability of the vessels of the eye mucosa, limiting the possibility of ingestion of an allergen to mast cells.
The pronounced therapeutic effect is observed approximately on the 7th day from the beginning of the drug application, reaching a maximum by the second week from the beginning of treatment.
Lecrolin (Lecrolyn) reduces symptoms of burning, dryness of the conjunctiva and other manifestations characteristic of giant papillary conjunctivitis - a disease whose development is associated with the use of eye prostheses, contact lenses, and with the presence of sutures after keratoplasty.
