• Does ADHD medication increase or cause astigmatism as a side effect?


    Question:

    Does the medication vyvanse make existing astigmatism worse or does it cause astigmatism as a side effect?


    Answer:

    Many children are on medications today, such as vyvanse, to control attention deficit disorders. To the best of my knowledge there is no evidence that vyvanse would affect or cause the development of astigmatism (irregularly shaped cornea).
