Optivar

This is the trade name for the antihistamine azelastine.  This is a prescription allergy drop, used for itching and swelling of the eyes and eyelids.  I’ve never prescribed this, given the ready supply of other allergy drops like Bepreve, Pataday and over-the-counter drops like Alaway/Zaditor.
