Topiramate was discontinued and, within 3 days, the child noted marked improvement of his vision in both eyes. An examination 2 weeks after the initial evaluation revealed 20/20 uncorrected vision in each eye. Slit lamp examination showed an anterior chamber with a normal depth and lens thickness that was clinically normal. Cycloplegic refraction revealed a refractive error of +0.50 in the right eye and +0.25 in the left eye.
