Dad has stopped Fosomax for abou 1.5 weeks now - yes his eyesight has improved dramatically. He can see something at least now withthe left eye. However he is not sure if it is directly linked to stopping Fosomax or the Predisolone he is taking. However, he will stop fosomax for some time. But he has developed severe backache instead. I am trying to get the following article on the web at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov:80. The anme of the article is :
"Arch Ophthalmol 1999 Jun;117(6):837-8
Ocular inflammation associated with alendronate therapy.
Mbekeani JN, Slamovits TL, Schwartz BH, Sauer HL
Department of Ophthalmology and Visual Sciences, Montefiore Medical Center, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, NY
PMID: 10369603, UI: 99296294"
Looks like they have done some study on the link of Fosomax (Alendronate) to Eye (Ocular). I have writen to them today - to get a copy of the article.
