Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Ocular Itching at Visit 3 (Day 0) at 7 Minutes Following Allergen Challenge, 16 Hours After Treatment Instillation. [ Time Frame: Visit 3 (Day 0) 16 hours post-dose, at up to 7 minutes following Allergen Challenge ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A 0 to 4 scale used, allowing for half increment scores, where 0 indicates "none" and 4 indicates "incapacitating itch with an irresistible urge to rub"; measurement taken at up to 7 minutes following allergen challenge, 16 hours post treatment instillation.

  • Conjunctival Redness at Visit 3 (Day 0) at 20 Minutes Following Allergen Challenge, 16 Hours After Treatment Instillation [ Time Frame: Visit 3 (Day 0) At 20 minutes following Allergen Challenge, 16 hours post-treatment ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A 0 to 4 scale used, allowing for half increment scores to measure redness, where 0 indicates "none" and 4 indicates "extremely red"; measurement taken at 20 minutes following allergen challenge, 16 hours post treatment instillation.

  • Ocular Itching at Visit 4 (Day 14) at 7 Minutes Following Allergen Challenge, 15 Minutes Post- Treatment Instillation [ Time Frame: Visit 4 (Day 14) up to 7 minutes following Allergen Challenge ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    0 to 4 scale, allowing for half increment scores, where 0 indicates "none" and 4 indicates "incapacitating itch with an irresistible urge to rub"

  • Conjunctival Redness at Visit 4 (Day 14) at 20 Minutes Following Allergen Challenge, 15 Minutes Post Treatment Instillation [ Time Frame: Visit 4 (Day 14) At 20 minutes following Allergen Challenge ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    A 0 to 4 scale used, allowing for half increment scores to measure redness, where 0 indicates "none" and 4 indicates "extremely red"; measurement taken at 20 minutes following allergen challenge, 16 hours post treatment instillation.
