Do you ask about the ophthalmic Gentamicin?
If yes, its the most common side effect - eye stinging/burning/redness or temporary blurred vision may occur, if its too bothersome? Please seek medical advice and ask the doc to prescribe something which is more compatible to the eyes & your system.
Use of this medication for prolonged or repeated periods may result in other types of eye infections, including fungal infections. Stop using this medication and contact the Doc if you notice new or worsening eye symptoms (such as pain, swelling, thick discharge or pus).
Please take care, be safe & well, good luck & best wishes!

One of the best ways to get a sty to go away is to do warm water soaks 3-4 times a day. Take a clean, laundered washcloth and run it under as warm water as you can stand without burning the lid skin and apply this to the affected closed eyelid until the cloth cools. Do this with a fresh, clean, laundered cloth each time, at least 3 or 4 times a day, and it should go away within a few days. You should continue to use the drops as the Dr ordered as well
