Thanks for posting your query on Health Care Magic.

Since, you are developing blurring of vision, light sensitivity and crusting, I would suggest you to discontinue its use.

You have mentioned that you suffer from season allergy and I guess you have developed allergic conjunctivities.

It is best to use mast cell stabilizers for this condition.

However, I would suggest you to discontinue the use of steroids, visit your treating doctor and discuss with him/ her your symptoms.

The drug can be changed to mast cell stabilizers after consulting your doctor.

If you have more queries, I will be glad to answer.
