Eye complications from complera?

May 14, 2012

Does Complera cause any eye complications? I feel as though I have a scratched cornea. My optometrist finds nothing wrong with the contact lense andshe does notice some abnormalities within the eye, but not very deep into the eye.. It could be viral, she says. So we're trying some steroidal drops in the eye and wearing eyeglasses only until further assessment of the drops.

Response from Dr. Young

Hi and thanks for posting.

As far as I'm aware (and could search), eye problems aren't associated with the medications in Complera (tenofovir, FTC, rilpivirine).

Hope things improve quickly, BY

Is it worth the risk?
