Cloudy in one eye

I was using a lotion called Nutracort (prescription based hydrocortisone) for a while on my face and when we traveled to another city for vacation I pulled out the Nutracort and it was pressurized from travel. When I opened the lid a little bit popped out of the tube and went in my right eye. I really did not think much of it at the time. This was 2 months ago. I noticed my eye was getting cloudy on the way home. I had actually forgotten about the incident because it happened so fast and when I returned home i went the eye doctor. At the time I could not remember what had actually happened believe it or not. I was a bit confused as to what it could be. The optomitrist looked at my eye closely and said he saw something over my eye like a coating blew across my eye. He prescribed me tobradex 4 times a day for a week. 2 weeks later I realized the Nutracort incident was most likely the casue of this. It is 2 months later and my eye is still cloudy and really annoying.

Does anyone out there know if this will go away eventually by itself or do I need to have some special treatment done to get it back to normal?

No I have not been back to eye doctor since the first visit.

Thanks.
