ELMIRON USE LINKED TO EYE DAMAGE
Elmiron is a drug that is frequently prescribed to treat interstitial cystitis and other bladder problems. It is widely used by people who suffer from this bladder condition. Recent studies indicate that more than one million people in the United States may be using this FDA-approved drug. According to research presented to the American Academy of Ophthalmology in 2019, up to one quarter of users with significant exposure to the drug have suffered significant eye damage.
Eye damage has been found in both men and women but women seem to suffer the negative effects the most. Complete vision loss or sight-related complications have occurred in many Elmiron eye damage victims including pigmentary maculopothy and retinal damage. Common symptoms of eye damage associated with Elmiron use include:
Loss of nighttime vision;
Other vision impairment.
If you or a loved one have experienced any of these symptoms following the use of Elmiron please contact your doctor immediately, then call our Elmiron eye damage attorneys for a free, no-cost evaluation of your potential claim.
