    Experts offer top allergy tips


    Marguerite McDonald, MD, FACS

    1. I like to arm patients before allergy season with a topical agent to use as needed. My current favorite is Bepreve (bepotastine besilate 1.5%, Bausch + Lomb). It’s highly effective, fast in onset of action, and kind to dry eyes.

    2. I have patients tested in our office for airborne allergens using the Doctor’s Allergy Formula kit (Bausch + Lomb). This helps tremendously with avoidance therapy.

    3. If patients experience systemic symptoms, I refer to an allergist. This referral is good for the patients, and I have made a new friend with whom I can trade referrals.
