Elmiron Maculopathy and Other Eye Damage Risk
In 2018, researchers first reported serious eye damage, including maculopathy, associated with long-term use of the bladder medication Elmiron.
In a follow-up study, researchers found that one-quarter of those taking Elmiron had serious eye damage, including maculopathy, pigmentary maculopathy, retinopathy, and scotoma. These injuries can result in serious long-term conditions such as full or partial blindness.
Symptoms of maculopathy or other eye damage caused by Elmiron include:
- Blurry vision
- Loss of vision
- “Floaters” in the field of vision
- Difficulty adjusting to low light environments
- Blind spots in the field of vision (scotoma)
- Distorted vision
- Dark areas in the field of vision
- Difficulty distinguishing colors
- Reduced visual sharpness
- Eye strain
- Eye pain
