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.

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.

Prednisone has caused my eye pressure to go up also, but not remicade. No other eye issues and I'm on glaucoma watch anyway because of family history
