Question:
Are there any possible visual or eye-related side effects or risks associated with Vyvanse® for ADHD?

Answer:
There do not appear to be any serious visual side effects from Vyvanse in children using the medication for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Some sources warn patients to report episodes of blurred vision to their prescribing doctor, which seems wise, as the dose and other possible interactions should be reviewed.
