I had the same concerns recently and brought them up with my psych. He wasn't aware of the glaucoma reports, your doc may not be either. You should let him know about any changes in your vision, especially blurred vision and tell him about the report. My blurred vision was things at a reasonable distance were becoming out of focus for me. I made an appt with my eye doc and was tested for glaucoma and everything was fine. We made an adjustment to my reading glasses and the blurriness has cleared up. You might want to consider a visit to the eye doc if you're really concerned about this, better safe than sorry.

I hope you'll let us know what happens.


> Hi. I'm on Zyprexa 10mg, Neurontin 900mg, and my pdoc just added Topamax 50mg for weight control. I've read some disturbed reports about cases were glaucoma was caused by topamax -- I am noticing changes in my vision, should I be concerned? things aren't fuzzzy -- they just look different, it's hard to describe. Things are clear, but different. how do I know when I should be concerned? what exactly does blurred vision mean? does it mean things become fuzzy? less clear?
