Tobrasone (by Alcon)
My daughter was having reddish eyes for few days and we showed her to an ophthalmologist today. She had has been prescribed Tobrasone (which has steroids) for a month in decreasing dosage. Also Pataday has been described as well. My question is Tobrasone safe for a 6 year old? I was reading on a certain website that it is safe for adults and is not recommend for less than 18 year olds. Please advise.
