Tobradex - Side Effects - Help!
I had an eye infection(eye redness) and my doctor pescribed me Tobradex for 5 days.
The eye redness is gone now but I'm having problem now on my right eye
Problems are blurred vision ,eye pain upon eye movement and a sensitivity to light.
I searched on Google and found in many articles that the eye blurriness is one of the side effects of using Tobradex.
My question is there anyone had the same problem of blurry vision? what precautions to take ? Is your eye is now ok? I stopped using tobradex now.

There is not a eye drop made or a drug prescribed that somewhere in the list of possible side effects mentions blurred vision.

You need to return as soon as possible to see an EYe MD ophthalmologist. It may be that you did not have an infected eye (conjunctivitis) but rather an evolving iritis (also called uveitis) which can cause all those symptoms. In any case have eyes examined ASAP by an EYE MD.
