has anyone on tamoxifen had any side effects affecting the eyes?
I don't take tamoxifen but I noticed that your post hadn't had any responses. This could be because no one in this group has had eye problems or because someone who has had problems hasn't yet seen your post. By replying it will bump it back to the top of the page.
I've found this information for you on tamoxifen and it does say that eye problems are a common side effect and to contact your doctor or CNS if you get blurry vision or notice any change in your vision.

Hi. For the first couple of months on Tamoxifen my eyes were blurry and dry but after that they have gone back to normal. I wear contact lenses so have a check up every 6 months and no issues have been noted.
My eyesight has deteriorated and I now need varifocals for reading without contact lenses. I don’t think this is a Tamoxifen issue though as I’m 48 and I think this happens to a lot of people around this age.
i hope that helps.
