High Intraocular pressure and Prednisolone
USA (United States of America)
I had a elevated Intraocular Pressure that was concerning to the eye doctor and am going back in in two weeks for further testing.
Of course, after reading on the internet, I read that steroids can affect eye pressure. I had been taking a 5 day course of prednisone that finished on Monday (my appt was today, Wed) - I didn't say anything about being on it due to the fact that they only asked about current drugs and it just didn't occur to me.
Could the prednisone be what affected my eye pressure for just a short term?
Thanks for your Question
Prednisolone can cause elevation in intraocular pressure but mainly through the form of eye drops more through the form of oral or blood especially in people who are steroid responders.
Most of the time it is temporary and the intraocular pressure will return to normal within days to few weeks.
