Hypersensitivity and localized adverse reactions such as lid itching and swelling and conjunctival erythema may occur. Sensitivity to topically applied aminoglycosides may occur in some patients. If a sensitivity dose occurs, discontinue use.
Use of this drug may result in glaucoma, with damage to the optic nerve, defects in visual acuity and fields of vision, and posterior subcapsular cataract formation, ocular perforation, and delayed wound healing.
In acute purulent conditions of the eye, steroids may mask infection or enhance existing infection.
Fungal infections of the cornea are particularly prone to develop coincidentally with long term applications of steroids. The possibility of fungal invasion must be considered in any persistent corneal ulceration where steroid treatment has been used. Secondary bacterial ocular infection following suppression of host responses also occurs.
Symptoms of an overdosage of TOBADEXA are punctuate keratitis, erythema, increased lacrimation, edema and lid itching.
Inform the doctor in case of any adverse reactions related to drug use.
