The list of medications that effect vision and ocular health include: antihistamines, corticosteroids, cardiovascular agents, antidepressants and antianxiety agents, retinoids, HRT medications, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, some antibiotics and many others.
It is important to recognize the importance of eye examinations. Many patients who take long-term medications come between twice to four times per year to assure that the medications are not causing adverse reactions and they have optimal ocular health. Please discuss the need for more frequent visits to our office with either your primary physician and/or one of our wonderful optometrists.
