Severe headache, blurry vision, stiff neck. Ct scan normal. ER doc felt confident. Could A CT scan have missed a cavernous sinus thrombosis?

Can ritalin (methylphenidate) cause a delayed accomodation?I am having blurred vision when i read something on the board.This problem was less frequent before medicatio
