In brief: Equivalent

These are combination drops with tobramycin, an effective antibiotic, combined with either Dexamethasone or Lotemax (loteprednol) - both effective topical anti-inflammatory steroids.
Any condition for which one is useful, will be handled by the other. The makers of Lotemax (loteprednol) claim a lower incidence of pressure elevation, but these drops are for short term use and pressure is not likely to be a problem.
