Eye drops left in hot car?

Hello so i got prescribed tobramycin and decamethasone eye drops and i had picked them up and I accidentally left them in the hot car for about 2 hours! I had immediately brought them back inside to cool down and i waited for them to cool down before putting them in my eye! Its says store between 46 and 80 degrees and it was 90 out! Will anything happen to the eye drops like will they be less effective or anything?

    Call the pharmacy/pharmacist and discuss this with them.  If it was 90 degrees outside, it was probably over 100 in the car.  Only the pharmacist can tell you if that level of heat exposure will damage the antibiotic in the drops.

    Get a new bottle. 2 hours at 90º, is too much.
