I have chalazion in my both eyes .. doctor prescribed Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) with fucithalmic drops.should i take both at same time? don't they have same effect?
Useless treatment: These antibiotics will not penetrate a chalazion. They are not worth the expense or time to treat this condition. Try using lots of heat - a washcloth under very warm (but not hot) water held over the chalazion for 4-5 minutes at least 5 times per day. If persistent more than one week of this treatment, then see your ophthalmologist. ...Read more

Overwear syndrome: Sounds like you had a keratitis possibly from hypoxia due to overwear of your contact lenses. As long as your eye doctor ruled out a corneal ulcer your eyes will gradually recover. You may want to return to your physician to re-evaluate your present contact lens material and fit to avoid a recurrence. You may also want to be evaluated for dry eye which can decrease the contact lens performance. ...Read more
