Details: Naphazoline is a vasoconstrictor used for the symptomatic relief of redness and itching of the eye and nasal congestion. Naphazoline exerts its effect by acting on alpha-adrenergic receptors in the arterioles of the conjunctiva to produce vasoconstriction, resulting in decreased conjunctival congestion and diminished itching, irritation, and redness.
Benefits: It is used for temporary relief of redness of the eye due to minor eye irritations and eases allergy signs. It is used to treat allergic conjunctivitis.
