Summary

The study was designed to evaluate the pattern of seasonal allergic signs and symptoms consistent with ongoing ocular allergic inflammation during ragweed season. It was hypothesized that a pattern of ongoing ocular allergic inflammation existed in certain subjects.

Description

Subjects who had a positive skin test to ragweed within 24 months of Visit 1 were instructed to complete a diary, which assessed their allergic signs and symptoms 3 times a day for 4 weeks. During the in-office visits, subjects were asked to completed a quality of life questionnaire, as well as a retrospective and/or prospective eye allergy questionnaire.
