Numerous scientific studies have investigated the link between Elmiron and the following diseases or injuries:
- Macular degeneration
- Pigmentary maculopathy
- Retinal maculopathy
Other Elmiron side effects may include:
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty reading
- Distorted vision
- Eye pain
- Issues adjusting to darkness
- Vision disturbances
- Vision loss
If you’ve taken Elmiron in the past, the first and most important step is to speak with your doctor. This way you can determine if you’ve suffered an eye disease, document the severity of damage, or, if your eyes are still healthy, establish a baseline for future comparison.
Even if your eye doctor previously diagnosed you with age-related macular degeneration, it’s important to inform them that you’ve taken Elmiron so they can update your diagnosis based on the new findings.
Next, it’s important to speak with a lawyer about your rights as soon as possible, since there is a time limit to filing a claim. While most eye diseases surfaced soon after Elmiron use, many patients suffered damage years after they last took the drug.
