Can injectable testosterone elevate eye pressure?
JAN 14, 2015
Although there are no known published reports in the peer reviewed journals of elevated IOP associated with testosterone injections, this potential side effect has been listed in the FDA’s prescribing information for testosterone.
The American Academy of Ophthalmology recommends that anyone who has not had a complete baseline exam by 40 years of age should do so, or if there are any new signs or symptoms they should obtain an exam as soon as possible. Initiation of testosterone treatment further reinforces the need to obtain a timely baseline ophthalmic examination by an ophthalmologist.
