Opthamologist won't prescribe anything else despite this medication not working after more then a year of use as directed. It is also expensive.

The drug is effective but a miniscule tube cost $200. Tobramycin and dexamethasone are both inexpensive drugs. There's no excuse for this.

Tobrex in ointment form is very easy to apply at home, and treatment does seem to take place. However, inflammation, redness, and pain, are side effects we experienced. I would suggest considering this before use.
