Dangerous Side Effects of Elmiron®: Eye Damage
Several studies over the last few years have discovered that Elmiron® is likely linked to a type of retina damage and vision loss called “pigmentary maculopathy.” The eye damage is ongoing, progressive, and irreversible. Ophthalmologists have long been unaware of the potential dangers of Elmiron®, and therefore have not known to advise patients to stop taking the drug.
The symptoms connected with Elmiron® related to vision loss include:
Vision loss, worsening over time
Deterioration of the eyes
Blurry or distorted vision (often in center of vision)
Difficulty seeing in the dark or at night
Loss of detailed vision
Dark spots appearing (often in center of vision)
In some cases, blindness (unilateral and/or bilateral)
Important: Damage to the eyes can continue to worsen for years even after you stop taking Elmiron®. According to some studies related to Elmiron’s negative impact on the eyes, it appears that even if a patient stops taking Elmiron®, his or her eye condition can still progressively worsen for years to come.
If it’s been a long time since you’ve taken Elmiron®, but are experiencing vision loss now, you should still contact an injury lawyer. You might be a victim of this drug’s dangerous effects and should get legal help pursuing compensation.
You might have been misdiagnosed! The vision problems linked with Elmiron® are classified as an unusual type of “maculopathy.” Because of how unusual the condition is and because it is so similar to other common eye diseases, some users of Elmiron® were misdiagnosed. If you were diagnosed with an eye disease and have taken Elmiron®, you should contact our injury firm immediately. You may be one of many victims of this drug’s dangerous side effects and could be eligible for compensation.
Patients who took Elmiron® may have been diagnosed or misdiagnosed with the following eye conditions:
Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD)
Retinal Macular Dystrophy
Retinal Pigmentary Changes
