The Open Ophthalmology Journal 28 Mar 2008 RESEARCH ARTICLE DOI: 10.2174/1874364100802010046

Abstract

Topiramate is an oral sulphamate medication primarily used for seizure, migraine and neuropathic pain. It has been associated with secondary angle closure, which can mimic acute angle closure glaucoma. Suspicion for medication induced angle closure glaucoma should be higher whenever angle closure presents bilaterally. We present two cases of bilateral angle closure glaucoma secondary to topiramate.
