Hello, Welcome to Pearl.com

Dr. A.S. Desai :

Are you available for chat now?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

How old is your son? Does he have any redness/watering from the eye?

Dr. A.S. Desai :

If it was an accidental instillation of the ear drops, it should not be of any serious problem. Many antibiotic drops have the same concentration for eye and ear as is the case in the drops you have put. So do not worry about it . Since you have already flushed it out by using cold water, just start putting some lubricating eye drops such as Refresh tears eye drops, 1 drop 4 -6 times a day for 3-4 days.
