In brief: Check with doctor

Generally, a drop safe for the eye should be safe for the ear, but the one you mentioned has a steroid in it which might be contraindicated for certain types of ear infections.
So, i would check with the prescribing doctor to make sure that the medication is ok to use for the ear problem.
