Detailed Description:
The objective of this pilot study is to evaluate the clinical and biological efficacy of preservative free NAAGA eyedrops in VKC –by in particular the levels of ECP and MPO in tears- comparatively to the activity of levocabastine eyedrops.

  • age >= 4 years old

Exclusion Criteria:

  • no occurrence of ocular trauma or infection (within the 3 months preceding the study),
