Accommodation spasm is a rare condition that presents with pseudomyopia usually in children and young adults. Most of the cases are associated with emotional conditions that causes functional spasm. Rarely, an underlying organic cause can be detected. Tetanus-diphtheria vaccine (Td) is a combined vaccine in toxoid form and performs to prevent infectious diseases caused by Clostiridium tetani and Corynebacterium diphtheriae, respectively. In this case report, we present the clinic features of a 13-year-old girl who applied with decreased vision after Td vaccination and diagnosed with isolated accommodation spasm.
