Hello
Welcome to Health care magic

I am Dr Dadapeer k an ophthalmologist and I answer health problems related to eye.
I reviewed your history.

It seems from the history that you have used ciprodex otic drops in eye.

This will not cause any problem as most of the eye and ear drops can be used interchangeably.
Some differ in preservative but should not cause any problem.
But for scratch only antibiotic eye drops should be used. The steroid eye drops should be avoided.
Since ciprodex contain steroid avoid using it, use only antibiotic like ciplox eye drops.

Hope I have answered your question and the information is helpful to you.
Do write back to me for further questions.

Thank you
With regards
