Are sulfacetamaide 10% eye drops and neomycin and polymyxin and dexamethasone eye drops for the same problems?

In brief: Generally

These are inexpensive eye preparations for treating infections when the organism is unknown at the time of patient examination.
They are effective although they have some degreee of allergic response. Many eye infections are viral in origin so these will not improve that situation.
