I have been using tobramycin opthalmic solution USP for two days for a stye. When should I expecf it to go away?

Doctor's Assistant: Have you experienced any changes or blurriness in your vision? Eye pain? Are your eyes dry or bloodshot?

Not dry, not bloodshot, blurry after drops only

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Have you been having any headaches?

Problem started on Tuesday, started the tobramycin on Thursday. Did have a weird pinpoint headache last night on the top if my head.

Will I be able to get a Rx from you if necessary?
Eye Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 7 months ago

This may take 3-5 days.

Warm soaks (four times a day for 15 min each time) are the mainstays of treatment.

We cannot prescribe online as it is illegal.

Stye does not need any other treatment.

It is self limiting.

Was this information helpful to you? I would be glad to answer any further questions.

My eyelid is swollen, left eye, inner corner, but it is very puffy under my eye.
Eye Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor (non-eye specialty) replied 7 months ago

Warm soaks would take care of it.

You may take Motrin.

Occasionally a surgical drainage may be necessary.

It is privilege assisting you.
