If our eyes are healthy, they can see both in the darkness of night and in glaring sunlight. Our eyes can differentiate between thousands of colors and can see a golf ball flying through the air. But this is only possible when the human "camera" is functioning perfectly. It is important to know: it is not always because of an eye defect or eye disorderthat our most important sensory organ sometimes does not function optimally. Various medications can also have a direct influence on our eyes.
The possible side effects of various medications include: dry eyes, heightened sensitivity to light, glare, blurred vision, altered spatial perception or difficulties with adjusting from darkness to light. In addition, some medications increase the penetration of UV rays. Here too, there are consequences for your eyes.
If you are experiencing problems, a visit to the doctor will certainly help. And after you have read the information provided with your medication, never simply stop taking it without consulting your doctor. Describe your particular symptoms to the doctor. An alternative medicationcan be found in almost all cases.
