17 Medications That May Cause Double Vision or Harm Your Eyes


 When people take medications for certain conditions, like blood pressure or allergies, they don’t often think about eye side effects. But some medications can cause side effects that affect the eyes, from mild dryness to severe inflammation. Your eyes are relatively small but have a rich blood supply, and that combination makes them vulnerable to side effects from medications.

Medications that may cause double vision or eye problems:

Fosamax

Topamax

Accutane

Cordarone

Flomax

Viagra

Tamoxifen

Thorazine

Myambutol or EMB

Plaquenil

Prednisone

Benadryl

Vistide

Lanoxin

Gilenya

Rifadin

Vibramycin


These side effects vary — and may involve any part of the eye, from the cornea in the front of your eye to the retina and optic nerve in the back of your eye.

What should you do if you develop vision changes or double vision while taking one of these medications?

If you’re taking any of these medications and you develop vision changes, double vision, or other eye symptoms — call our office right away. Early treatment can protect your vision. Our doctors will also help you decide what to do.


There are far more than 17 medications that can lead to vision changes and double vision. Make sure you tell our doctors about all of the medications you’re taking, including over-the-counter supplements. 


We’re here to help with all your vision care and questions.
