Used Elmiron? Have Eye Damage?
Did you develop a severe eye disease known as maculopathy after the use of Elmiron medication?
Since the 1990s, millions of patients have been prescribed Elmiron in order to treat their interstitial cystitis (IC), otherwise known as painful bladder syndrome. Today, there is a strong reason to believe that this drug may cause a serious eye condition.
This condition is a form of maculopathy, which is a degeneration of the central part of the retina. Along with retinal damage and other symptoms, Elmiron can potentially lead to vision loss and blindness.
Doctors at Atlanta’s Emory Eye Center encountered an eye condition they hadn’t seen before in six women in 2015. This form of eye disease was not seen before but the center was able to realize that all of these women had taken Elmiron.
Eye disease is still not listed as a possible side effect by the manufacturer, despite evidence.
