I have read in my Pharmacology studies that these coricoid steroids cause intraoccular pressure to go up, and I have also read that they can some hearing loss.
Expert:  Dr. S. Attili replied 5 years ago.
Glaucoma caused by raised intraoccular pressure is definitely a side affect of the steroid. However, I have never really seen hearing loss with Prednisone if at all this is listed in the side affects, this must be extremely rare & has no pharmacological basis. I have never read about the side affects. If you can give me a reference , I can look up the validity of it.
