The efficacy of topical oxymetazoline and naphazoline has been evaluated in 20 patients suffering from benign red eyes The results of the present study reveal that ocular decongestant action of 0.01 % oxymetazoline on 3rd and 7th day was 66.66% and 80.55% as compared to 22.22% and 50% of 0.01% naphazoline respectively Significant improvement in the conjunctival symptoms viz itching, foreign body sensation, watering and burning sensation, was achieved with oxymetazoline as compared to naphazoline. No ocular toxicity was observed with oxymetazoline during the study period The findings of this study suggest that 0.01% oxymetazoline is a superior alternative to presently available decongestants.
