Williamson Eye Center is proud to be part of advancing eye care for patients across the globe. In following with that mission, our Optometrist and Dry Eye Center Director, Dr. Joshua Davidson, is helping to bring a new eye drop to eye clinics across the nation which will help patients suffering from common ocular allergies.
Dr. Davidson was selected by Eyevance Pharmaceuticals to review the new eye drop called ZERVIATE and to teach doctors around the country about how it works and how to select patients that would best benefit from this new treatment. With Dr. Davidson leading this effort for the profession, patients across the U.S. will now benefit by having an effective option to treat common allergies and symptoms like itching, redness and watering in the eyes.
ZERVIATE is recommended for treatment of ocular itching associated with allergic conjunctivitis. With ingredients like that of the popular allergy drug Zyrtec, this new drop showed rapid relief of ocular itching within 3 minutes in clinical trials. With that, and with it’s strong safety profile after world-wide exposure to millions of patients, this new treatment provides a very effective and safe solution to treat allergy sufferers.
Dr. Davidson was quoted in the national press release from Eyevance Pharmaceuticals. “Allergic conjunctivitis is one of the most common conditions that therapeutic optometrists treat on a daily basis, year-round,” shared Josh Davidson, O.D., F.A.A.O., Director of Dry Eye Center of Excellence, Williamson Eye Center, Baton Rouge, Louisiana. “The introduction of ZERVIATE provides optometrists a very well-known antihistamine, in cetirizine, to prescribe to their patients. I look forward to having topical ZERVIATE as part of my armamentarium.”
