Ocular allergy: recognizing and diagnosing hypersensitivity disorders of the ocular surface
Andrea Leonardi, Ewa Bogacka, Jean Luc Fauquert, Marek L Kowalski, Anna Groblewska, Monika Jedrzejczak-Czechowicz, Serge Doan, Farid Marmouz, Pascal Demoly, Luis Delgado

Ocular allergy includes several clinically different conditions that can be
considered as hypersensitivity disorders of the ocular surface. The classification
of these conditions is complex, and their epidemiology has not
been adequately studied because of the lack of unequivocal nomenclature.
Ocular allergy symptoms are often, but not always, associated
with other allergic manifestations, mostly rhinitis. However, specific
ocular allergic diseases need to be recognized and managed by a team
that includes both an ophthalmologist and an allergist. The diagnosis of
ocular allergy is usually based on clinical history and signs and symptoms,
with the support of in vivo and in vitro tests when the identification of
the specific allergic sensitization is required for patient management. The
aims of this Task Force Report are (i) to unify the nomenclature and classification
of ocular allergy, by combining the ophthalmology and allergy
Allergic Rhinitis and its Impact on Asthma criteria; (ii) to describe current
methods of diagnosis; (iii) to summarize the therapeutic options for the
management of ocular allergic inflammation.
