IMMUNOPATHOPHYSIOLOGY OF OCULAR ALLERGY Allergic diseases affecting the eyes constitute a heterogeneous group of clinicopathologic conditions with a vast array of clinical manifestations that range from simple intermittent symptoms of itching, tearing, or redness to severe sight-threatening corneal impairment (Table 4–1). Inflammation of the conjunctiva rather than mechanical factors play a greater role in the formation of corneal damage in chronic allergic eye disease. These conditions may be considered part of an immunologic spectrum that affects the anterior surface of the eye with a variety of disorders that may overlap and include seasonal and perennial allergic conjunctivitis (SAC, PAC), vernal and atopic keratoconjunctivitis (VKC, AKC), and giant papillary conjunctivitis (GPC).

A combination of prick skin testing and intradermal skin testing is used to assess venom allergy and penicillin allergy. This and radioallergosorbent (RAST) testing are discussed in the appropriate chapters that follow. I mention it here at the end of the physical examination section because it is so integral to the assessment of the most common allergic disorders. It is often efficient to skin-test a patient after taking the history and examining them. By using a small number of screening aeroallergens, you can quickly and efficiently give the patient an indication about the cause of their symptoms.
