Ophthalmology & Optometry/flomax


there are unscientific articles all over internet abour Flomax causing glomoca.I don't know if blurry eyes from glocoma/but does Flomax cause glocoma.I appreciate an answer from scientific proof not fear mongers thank you

The main ocular issue with Flomax is the complications in cataract surgery
Because it causes the FIS. Or floppy iris syndrome . Blurry vision is another possible side effect.  I haven't heard of glaucoma being related to the use of Flomax.  Dr Berger
