1 doctor agrees

In brief: 2 things

Tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) is an antibiotic / steroid combination where as tobrex is an antibiotic only .
The steroid makes tobradex (tobramycin and dexamethasone) much stronger since it treats inflammation as well, but carries a risk of glaucoma and cataracts.
