Do Blood Pressure Meds. Cause Vision Problems?

If so which ones are the worst? I read that Vytorin can cause blurriness, but it's a drug I have to take. I have severe problems with my vision anyway, I don't want to take meds. and make it worse.

My vision blurred considerably when I was on Norvasc. I am still on some Lisinopril, vision is still slightly blurred, but only after watching a movie on TV. With the Norvasc, it pretty much stayed blurry, but since I had stopped taking that drug, it went away.

Thanks so much! I was on Norvasc and had all sorts of side effects, the worst of which was the extreme swelling in my ankles and feet. I'm feeling so much better off it and now that I know it can cause blurred vision I KNOW I'm better off without it!

i am on lisinopril and it does affect my vision somewhat I have a hard time reading small print when before that never was a problem.

but it is not enough to make me a danger when driving or anything, it is only fine print.

My mom took lisinopril and it caused blurry vision. Then she took toprol xl and it caused her temporary blindness. three yrs later she was prescribed norvasc and it caused eye pain. She ended up in the er.She's now taking clonidine and has ok vision.
