Topiramate (TPM) shows idiosyncratic adverse reaction of peripheral ciliochoroidal effusion leading to acute angle closure glaucoma (AACG), which should be diagnosed and managed at the earliest to prevent irreversible visual loss. We report, a case of TPM-induced bilateral AACG and myopic shift, which was reversed by omitting TPM and administering antiglaucoma medications.
