    Hi and thank you for posting,

    I think that this is a question best asked of your wife's doctor. He/she will be able to tell you the right ADHD medication to take that won't have any side effects on her eyes. In the meantime, here is some information on ADHD medication choices, effects and more .

    Best wishes,
    Atti
