Get a second opinion: Firtst, clean lashes with a 50% solution on warm water and baby soap. Next, get a sexcond opinion or a different eye mediciation- you may be sensitive to the Tobra Dex. 10 months is simply too long.

Not correct treatmen: Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is a poor choice for treatment of these conditions. Blepharitis and dry eye often occur together and both disorders require treatment. See an ophthalmologist for evaluation and management of these disorders.
