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