Abstract

Background. In recent years, the prevalence of allergic diseases of the anterior chamber of the eye has increased. They are often accompanied by the development of dry eye syndrome, which can complicate their course. Therefore, it is important to take a comprehensive approach to their diagnosis and treatment. The purpose was to study the effectiveness of 0.4% sodium hyaluronate (Gilays) in children with dry eye syndrome on the background of allergic diseases of the conjunctiva. Materials and methods. The study involved 42 patients (84 eyes) aged 3 to 18 years, who were examined and treated on the basis of Regional Eye Clinic. Patients were treated with local H-1 histamine blockers twice a day for 14 days, f necessary — with topical glucocorticoids by the scheme for 12 days. In the first group (21 patients, 42 eyes), the main treatment was added with the drugs containing 0.2% sodium hyaluronate, used topically 4 times a day for 14 days. In the second group (21 patients/42 eyes), 0.4% sodium hyaluronate (Gilays) was added to the treatment regimen. H-1 histamine blockers were not used systemically. Before starting therapy and 2 weeks later, the following values were evaluated: the changes in the anterior chamber of the eye using biomicroscopy, determination of lacrimal film rupture time, Schirmer 1 test, questionnaire. Conclusions. The use of sodium hyaluronate in the complex therapy of dry eye syndrome in allergic eye diseases is quite effective. The use of 0.4% sodium hyaluronate was more effective compared to the control group. It is advisable to use a questionnaire to communicate with the child, but it is necessary to refine the form of questions to eliminate as much as possible the subjectivity of the data.
