User rating for this question
My wife has had severe headaches and taken a round of antibiotics to no relief. She has visited three eye doctors and was given Tobramycin and dexamethasone . Her right eye lost reading vision after 5 applications treating conjunctivitice. She lost a lot of her reading vision this afternoon within 1 hour. They want us to go to an er but it's along way and we doubt they will do any good any suggestions?

Brief Answer: Please visit ER Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX Thanks for writing in to us. Tobramycin is an antibiotic and dexamethasone is a steroid preparation. These medications are given in mild eye infections. Loss of clear vision is a significant problem and may highlight something important going on inside the eye. It can be something that needs emergency imaging investigation and further treatment. I strongly suggest to visit your nearest ER and get further treatment. It could be anything from a occular migraine, tension headache, MS or meningitis.] Hope your query is answered. Do write back if you have any doubts. Regards, Dr.Vivek
