Although drug-induced transient myopia has been reported to be caused by the use of several drugs, it is very rare and the causes are still uncertain. A considerable literature has accumulated relating the occasional occurrence of myopia in patients receiving carbonic anhydrase inhibitors, especially acetazolamide. However the authors could not find any literature concerning transient myopia induced by dichlorphenamide. The authors reporthed here a case of transient myopia after dichlorphenamide in a patient with serous detachment of the macula with a review of the literatures.
Key Words: Dichlorphenamide;Transient myopia
