Ocular side-effects of Ibuprofen ( Vision )

Glen McMillan from Glen McMillan Okara Ward

I put a post up a couple of days ago saying I had given up ibuprofen for gout and was using red cherries instead. I believe my eyesight has suddenly improved particularly in reading subtitles on TV.
I have been doing some research and came across this detailed report from 1970. If you are taking ibuprofen you should read this. the link is below
