Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this mistake. How long ago did it happen? Is she keeping her eyes open normally at this time? Is she squinting or wanting to hold them partially /fully closed?

So here at this time the application was 45 minutes ago and now he's completely normal with his eyes as far as keeping them open, no discharge, no redness, no irritation, or no cloudiness?

That is good that she's acting completely normal with her eyes at this time. If she was to start to squinting, holding the eye shut, or to have discharge then there would be more concern for irritation / damage from the application of that ear medication to the eyes. Honestly, this happens. I've had a case just like this at my ER in the past. Typically if a problem is going to arise, it will be noticed in the first few hours as far as holding the eye shut or squinting. That is when an ulcer would be suspect. The best thing to do is right after the accident is to rinse the eye with sterile contact saline. I wouldn't put anymore of those eye drops in the eye as it has a steroid.

Steroids can cause a small ulcer to really blow up. Rinsing the eye with the contact saline solution and then observing for the squinting, holding eye shut, discharge, or cloudiness would then be the next things to follow.
