Did A Bladder-Pain Drug Damage Your Eyesight?

If So, Victims May Be Eligible For Significant Financial Compensation!

ElmironElmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) has been prescribed for the treatment of interstitial cystitis (bladder pain syndrome) and urinary tract infections.

2019 However, in 2018, the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) published a study that found a link between patients treated with Elmiron and the development of maculopathy.

Human Eye AnatomyMaculopathy refers to a variety of disorders involving the center of the retina, which is called the macula. The macula senses light, and is responsible for all central vision, most color vision, and seeing fine details.

Researchers Published Study In May of 2019, researchers published a study concluding that Elmiron use resulted in “potentially avoidable retinal degeneration phenomenon associated with chronic [Elmiron] exposure.” They also concluded that Elmiron use caused “structural changes” in the pigmented layer of the retina.

October of 2019 - AAO published an additional studyIn October of 2019, the AAO published an additional study, which stated that Elmiron “appears to be toxic to the retina.” That same year, three ophthalmologists from Kaiser Permanente conducted a review of patients in Northern California. As reported in Science Daily, those doctors “found that about one-quarter of patients with significant exposure to Elmiron showed definite signs of eye damage, and that this medication toxicity could masquerade as other known retinal conditions, such as age-related macular degeneration or pattern dystrophy.”

Common Symptoms May Include...

associated eye damage

If you experienced any of the following symptoms while taking Elmiron, or shortly after you stopped taking Elmiron, you may be eligible for legal representation.

  • Difficulty reading
  • Difficulty with near vision
  • Difficulty adapting to dim lighting or darkness
  • Generalized dimming of vision
  • Blurred vision (often in the central field of vision)
  • Dark spots in the center of the field of vision
  • Blind spots
  • Straight lines appearing curved or squiggly (metamorphopsia)
  • Muted, less vivid colors

Even if you were treated with Elmiron but haven’t been medically diagnosed with any vision impairment, you still may qualify for legal representation.

Vision impairment can have a severe impact on a person’s life, as well as the lives of their entire family.

It can negatively affect their ability to make a living, their ability to drive, and cost them their independence.

Worst of all, it can rob them of their quality and enjoyment of life.
