Ocular allergy is an umbrella term that encompasses several clinical phenotypes, each with its own individual presentation, clinical findings and outcomes and treatment. The majority of patients will have seasonal or perennial allergic conjunctivitis which are IgE-mediated conditions with defined triggers. The more severe forms of ocular allergy have both IgE and non-IgE mechanisms and a more severe clinical course. Treatment must be titrated against the type and severity of the disease, but patients with all forms of ocular allergy can expect good outcomes when it is adequately assessed and correctly managed in a multi-disciplinary team.
