Lisinopril effect on eyes
started 10mg lisinopril last month and have noticed a change in vision. In the past I have only required drug store reading glasses for close vision, but now I need them for reading things that are 3 - 5' away.  Do your eyes adjust to this med with time, is it just something you should live with or is a change in medication required ?

Lisinopril side effects:

You may experience headache, dizziness, lightheadedness, fatigue, nausea, diarrhea, dry cough or blurred vision as your body adjusts to the medication. If any of these effects persist or worsen, notify your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

I have three different reading glasses of progressive strength.  Sometimes the lower strength is sufficient, and at other times the stronger is needed!!  I never considered it a serious problem, just part of the aging process.  I take lisinopril and beta blocker.
