Can one build up a tolerance to either Alrex (loteprednol) and Pred Forte eye drops over time, decreasing their effectiveness?

In brief: Probably not

Alrex (loteprednol) is extremely weak and you would not be likely to notice the difference.
Pred Forte has a good deal of anti-inflammatory strength but is a cognate of a natural hormone so you would not lose response. The condition you are treating might get more severe however which you would interpret as the drop losing effectiveness.
