See an Eye MD: If the cause of your pink eye is bacterial, tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) may be a good choice. However unless you see an eye md to determine the cause, the steroid in tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) might make you worse. If the cause is herpes virus type i you will definitely get worse. See an eye md! ...Read more
I have pink eye from my son. Without insurance temporarily so i used old tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) that expired last yr. Can't afford to go to doc. Will it work?
Not best choice: Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) contains dexamethasone, a steroid that can make some infections worse, while making the user actually feel better. It may be the wrong medicine to use in the case of a viral infection. There is also a chance that the potency of the medicine has diminished to the point if being ineffective.. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm on accutane. I have pink eye and my doctor gave me antibacterial eyedrops tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone). Can I use tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) while on accutane?Is there any interaction?
No interaction: Accutane tends to cause a conjunctivitis in susceptible persons. This is not infectious but is red and irritated. While tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) can be used, you can substitute an anti-allergic drop like over the counter naphcon-a (available in drug store brands) and avoid the cost of tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) and the tiny risk associated with chronic topical steroid use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Son of 1yr has conjunctivitis in both eyes went to dr 2day ago no drops prescribed just to keep clean, now his eyes are puffing underneath?
Conjunctivitis: Your doctor believes your son has a viral conjunctivitis, sometimes also called pink eye. No need to treat this with antibiotic drops. Artificial tears can be used, but very difficult to give to babies, as they fight getting drops in eyes. Follow doctor's advice for now and contact doctor again if you see yellow pus or eyes turn very red or things don't improve in few days. ...Read more
Optometry just diagnosed me with giant papillary conjunctivitis but I have never worn contacts. He prescribed prednisalone . Says something could have?
Could be GPC: Most giant papillary conjunctivitis in this country is related to contact lens solution allergy but some can occur without this stimulus. Prednisone eyedrops are the standard treatment but might have some side effects. Suggest that you see a real doctor, an ophthalmologist , for a second opinion. ...Read more

What is the period of time for prescribed antibiotics to work for a bacterial conjunctivitis(pinkeye)?
My right eye has been puffy and dark for about 2 weeks. It started about 3 weeks ago and I went to the MinuteClinic where they prescribed an ointment for conjunctivitis and said to use a warm compress. My eye is still dark, puffy, with some pain.
How long should I wait after my last dose of fluorometholone eye drops (prescribed for allergic conjunctivitis) before wearing contacts again?
Yesterday found out I have acute allergic conjunctivitis in my right eye. I was prescribed tobrex (tobramycin). Wondering when can I wear my contacts. ?
Wait: Tobrex (tobramycin) is an antibiotic used for bacterial eye infections. I recommend discontinuing contact lenses until your infection is resolved, usually 7-10 days. Now if you truly have an allergic conjunctivitis, then you are on the wrong medication. If you have goopy, sticky discharge and only have itchy watery eyes with scant stringy discharge, then i'd use otc zaditor™ twice daily for symptom control. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ophthalmologist prescribed desonide cream .05% to rub on eyelids, (allegeric conjunctivitis)...how do I do that without getting it in the eye?
Wrong question: Conjunctivitis refers to inflammation of the membranes inside the eyelids + around the eyeball. This steroid cream is applied to the skin for dermatitis. Calcineurin inhibitor such as tacrolimus ointment is preferred for eyelids. It is more effective and safer. But conjunctivitis requires medication applied INSIDE the eyelid or on the eyeball. There are different products made for this applicati ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
