Birth Control

Is there a link between birth-control pills and eye problems?

A Answers (1)

  • Rarely, birth-control pills have been associated with several eye conditions involving the blood vessels of the eye. However, there is no proof of a direct link between birth-control pills and eye disease in most women, and the risk of eye problems appears to be very low. Whatever risk there may be is increased by smoking and high blood pressure. There is no association between birth-control pills and myopia.
