Eye drops for ears: Have you been diagnosed with outer ear infections (otitis externa) or have tubes surgically placed into your ear drum for chronic middle ear infection? these are the only reason why you would be putting antibiotic drops in your ears. If not, then stop and see an ENT right away. The drops treat topical infection of what they touch. They cannot penetrate the ear drum to treat a middle ear infection.
