Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • I had two successful cataract surgeries (right/left) in 2009. 2011 a bout of afib, hospitalized, put on Amiodarone for high dose for 14 days then the dose cut in half, continued on it for over one year, eyes started to hurt feeling as if they were too large for socket, eyesight started to deteriorate and within months was legally blind, not taken off Amiodarone, about seven months after starting Amiodarone I was taken off simvastatin, now the VA is trying to cover their tracks to find anything that may be the cause OTHER THAN AMIODARONE.
