Could I give lotemax (loteprednol) eye drops to my 2yr old with pink eye?

Pediatrics office. It is best to check with your doctor to determine the best course of treatment. Pink eye in this age group is usually treated with topical antibiotics applied to the eye. If the eye is swollen or painful referral to an ophthalmologist will be made by your doctor. It is important to have the eye checked and to also rule out any corneal abrasions ( scratches to the eye).
