This is a case report of acute myopia following topiramate administration. There are several reports of this side effect recently and fortunately all of them were reversible. In our case we tried again topiramate with very low dose and increase it very slowly, the patient was followed and she tolerated it well and didnt find ocular problem anymore. So it could be suggested that starting with low dose topiramate may prevent recurrence of myopia.
