After I used nasonex for several weeks (with no warning from the doctor who prescribed it), I suffered damage to the optic nerve in my right eye; subsequently I developed glaucoma in both eyes. Though there's no way to prove a connection, there's no other explanation for the damage to my vision.

In this case, I believe it would be very hard for anyone to say what has caused your condition.

Nasonex contains the active ingredient Mometasone, which is a steroid class medication and prolonged use of them has been known to cause glaucoma, but that usually takes longer than a few weeks.

However, there are other factors that can also cause glaucoma and you can learn more about them here:

Have you discussed this with a doctor?
