    Hi my son is taking prozac and adderall and has been complaint of
    blurry vision for awhile. i took him to an optometrist and he
    refracted him with +0.50 each eye. he thinks my son's blurry vision
    may be due to the medications and told me to consult with the
    pediatrician. he gave a precription for reading only since my son sees
    well for distance. any experience with blurry vision associated with
    prozac and adderall. thanks

  2. Ah yes it can I took Prozac 3 different times and one time with another
    it brought my prescription from -7 D back to like - 5.25 D.
    Kind of a wild experience.....if anyone is on psychtropic medication
    and considering refractive surgery they must really be sure the meds aren't
    affecting their refractive situation first.

  3. Yes, both drugs affect autonomic receptors that affect eye focusing.
    Increased nearsightedness would be expected. If this is recent, he may get
    some improvement in time as his body adjusts to the medication.

    The effect should be benign, but still talk to your doctor.
