Medications Can Cause Eye Disease
I was surprised to learn that commonly prescribed medications can impair our vision and cause diseases of the eye. A recent report, published in Drug Safety, identified 62 drugs that can cause adverse reactions to the eye.
Public Citizen, on its WorstPills.org web site, summarizes the report and details how the medications can cause cataracts, glaucoma, conjunctival diseases, optic nerve diseases, and retinal abnormalities.
Be an informed consumer….You eyesight may depend upon it!
