Can abscessed tooth cause vision loss?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Elizabeth Holland
Specializes in Ophthalmology
Yes: In my clinical practice, I have seen a patient that had a tooth abscess and developed inflammation in both eyes that affected his vision. It only resolved after the tooth was fixed. If you notice any changes in the vision, you should see your eyecare provider.
