cipro-blurred vision

Jun 24, 2005

I am a 51 yr. old female. Took 250mg.x2 cipro for 7 days. My vision is very blurred since finishing on 6-17-05. Can only see close up to read. New eye glasses are 2 months old and were fine until 6-18-05-had blood work recently, no diabetes. Does cipro cause blurred vission? I'm frightened.PLEASE HELP.

Response from Dr. Young

Thanks for your post.

Ciprofloxacin can cause photosensitivity (sensitivity to bright lights)-- I'm not aware of changes in visual acuity.

Nonetheless, I'd be certain to contact your physician about the symptoms that you're experiencing and insist on an evaluation. BY
