Yes, wait 10 min.: Yes, 2 different eye drops can be used around the same time, but wait at least 10 minutes between one dose and the next. Also, if your eye is no better after a week on the above drops you need to call your eye doctor and arrange for a follow up visit to see why you're not getting better. Do this ASAP.
