I was given Tobradex in the past for Giant Papillary Conjunctivitis, with quick relief from the symptoms. I was diagnosed with a mild form of GPV this week and prescribed neo-poly-dex. After taking it for almost 2 days the symptoms seem to be unchanged. Would switching to Tobradex be an option at this time, if my opthamologist concurs? Also, how long do the neo-poly-dex drops need to be in place per dosage- Is it OK to flush the treated eye w/saline after 1.5-2 hrs.? By then the drops have hardened and irritate my eye.
You can most certainly ask your ophthalmologist about Tobradex. I wouldnt recommend that you flush the eye with saline but you can wash around the edges of the eye if the drops have hardened there. Use a clean laundered wash cloth and warm water. You can lay the cloth over the eye for a few minutes to loosen the debris then gently wipe the edges of your lids and the corners of your eyes. These drops have a tendency to dry in the corners of the eye and sometimes leave a white residue which is fine to remove as I mentioned. If you wear contact lenses, you might need to give your eyes a break from the contacts for a while.
