Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone): I like to use non steroid drops in the eye. I like the plan tobramycin drops. Call the on call pediatrician to get a prescription. Use one to two drops i each eye three times a day. The eye does not have to be open for the drops to get in. Just put the drop in the middle corner or the eye and when the child opens the eye, it will go in no problem. Good luck.
