    Question:

    I have a minor infection in the eye socket of an enucleated eye (eye that has been removed). Can I use maxidex or tobradex in the eye socket along with soaking the artificial eye?


    Answer:

    Yes, you can, but please see your ophthalmologist. He or she can evaluate the infection and provide guidance for the use of any medication.
