In the contraindications of smallpox vaccine it says that caution should be used if ocular corticosteroid use. So steroid eye drops would be a caution. Smallpox vaccine is a live virus and there can be problems if your immune system is at all comprimised. I would talk to my doc about it before getting it if it were me.
