What are Ketas eye drop 0.01% for allergic conjunctivitis (ibudilast)?

As the result, Ketas eye drops reduce pain, irritation, itching and feeling of a dry eye. Usually, this medicine is prescribed for the treatment of allergic conjunctivitis and hay fever. Studies showed that ibudilast ophthalmic solutions decrease allergic and inflammatory reactions better than cromoglycate and ketotifen.
