I don't think so. I've had to start wearing reading glasses, but I think that's just age related. But, now that you've mentioned it, maybe I'll try to see ophthalmologist.

Have you been on a lot of prednisone in the past?

Remicade hasn't, but Imuran has caused me eye inflammation in the past, and I've had to go for yearly ophthalmology visits since I started on immunosuppressants when I was diagnosed at age 11.

I recently was restarted on Remicade, and I've had some issues with blurry/double vision from time to time since then, but my doctors think that it's more tied to my neuro issues, not to Remicade.
Dx: Crohn's Disease, SpA, May 2004 (age 11); POTS, 2012 (Age 19)
Currently taking: Remicade (Crohn's); MTX (SpA); Florinef, Midodrine, Klonopin (POTS); Iron (Anemia)
Past Meds: Prednisone, 5-ASA, 6-MP, Imuran, Flagyl, Bentyl, Celebrex...you name it!
Other issues: POTS, SpA, Anemia

Remicade hasn't affected my vision, but prednisone did cause a lot of pressure in my eyes in the past. Are you on any other medication?

You should mention it to your GI so they can help you figure it out.
