Thank you for the additional information.

Vicoden generally does not have any adverse effects on the eyes. It can potentially cause them to be dry and in turn cause your eyes to contract excessively. I recommend you use over the counter artificial tears 4-6 times a day such as Systane or Refresh. If it is not improved, I'd recommend you see your ophthalmologist for a more thorough evaluation.
