Abstract

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is commonly treated with amphetamines as first line therapy. Rare case reports have shown amphetamines are associated with open angle glaucoma. We report a rare case of a 14-year-old male who presented with bilateral acute angle closure presumed to be related to his use of lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (Vyvanse). The patient's medication was discontinued which resulted in complete resolution of angle closure.
