people suffer form chronic eye infection or inflammation which cannot be
attributed directly to pollen, or any other obvious cause. The symptoms range
from a persistent mild eye irritation without any overt signs of inflammation,
to semi-acute episodes of foreign-body sensation, redness, watering, mild itch
etc. Not infrequently, the patient can relate the eye irritation to a recent
