Hi Kelly,
I have, its a bad side effect of the meds. According to the drug maker if you have this side effect you should tell your doctor asap because you may need to go off the med.
Best,
Seth

I was taking Topamax for Cluster Headaches for about a week and an half. I woke up one morning and my eyes were very dry, red and etchy. That was around 6:30 am, by 10:30 am my eyes were almost swollen shut. I went to my family doctor and he set me to an eye doctor right then. The eye doctor said it was the Topamax and gave me eye drops and told me to stop using the Topamax. I went from 20/20 to not seeing the big E on the eye chart over night. The area around my eyes became swollen and stayed that way for 5 days before I could even began to see almost anything at all. I was freaking out because I thought I would not be able to see again. After almost two weeks my vision came back alomst as well as before taking the med's. It is now around three and a half weeks after stopping taking it and my night vision is still not very good. I still have dry eyes and if I drive at night for very long my eyes get very red and hurt for the rest of the night. I would tell you to be Very careful about taking Topamax.
