• Can clopine (Clozapine) medication cause astigmatism?


    Question:

    Can clopine (clozapine, a drug used to treat mood disorders) medication cause astigmatism?


    Answer:

    No. Astigmatism is caused by irregularities in the shape of the cornea or the lens. However, clozapine is one of many medications that can dry out the cornea and cause a change in the prescription. These changes usually reverse with a return of the cornea to its usual lubricated state.
