Patanol is an antihistamine used to treat itching and redness in the eyes resulting from allergies. Its targeted use in addressing allergic eye symptoms highlights its role in providing relief from the discomfort associated with ocular allergies.

Olopatadine, the active ingredient in Patanol, exerts its effects as an antihistamine, working to alleviate itching and redness in the eyes by targeting the underlying allergic response.


  • Wash your hands thoroughly before using Patanol.
  • Tilt your head back, look up, and create a pouch with your lower eyelid to receive the drop.
  • Aim the dropper directly over your eye and gently squeeze one drop into the pouch.
  • Close your eyes gently and apply pressure to the inner corner for 1-2 minutes to prevent drainage.
  • Repeat these steps for your other eye if needed.
  • Replace the cap securely after each use.
  • Use Patanol as directed by your healthcare provider or the package instructions, typically once or twice daily.
  • Use the medication regularly at consistent times for optimal benefit.
  • If using other eye medications, wait at least 5 minutes between applying Patanol and other drops or ointments. Use Patanol before ointments.
  • Allow your vision to clear before driving or operating machinery.
  • Contact your healthcare provider if your condition worsens or persists, or if you suspect a serious medical problem.


  • Don't touch the dropper tip to your eye or any other surface to avoid contamination.
  • Don't use Patanol while wearing contact lenses. Remove them before application and wait at least 10 minutes before reinserting.
  • Don't rinse the dropper after use.
  • Don't exceed the recommended dosage or use Patanol for longer than prescribed.
  • Don't share your eye drops with someone else.
  • Don't ignore any side effects and consult your healthcare provider if you experience any discomfort.
