Elmiron and Vision Loss

In 2018, an article was published by the American Academy of Ophthalmology which stated six patients treated at Emory Eye Center between 2015 and 2017 experienced pigmentary maculopathy of an unclear cause. Each of these patients had taken Elmiron for a prolonged period of time.

This article led to additional studies, each of which linked Elmiron to eye damage. Elmiron vision loss lawsuits began to be filed shortly thereafter.

Maculopathy and Elmiron: What’s the Connection?

Elmiron and Eye Damage - Riddle & BrantleyMaculopathy is a general term that refers to any pathological condition affecting the macula, the central part of the retina. The macula is located near the center of the retina and its function is to give us clear vision and the ability to see fine detail.

There are several forms of macular degeneration. The type most often associated with Elmiron is identified as “pigmentary maculopathy of unknown etiology.” This condition may differ slightly from one patient to another.

Symptoms of pigmentary maculopathy and other eye conditions potentially caused by Elmiron may include:

  • Blind spots in the field of vision (scotoma)
  • Blurry vision
  • “Floaters” (spots or lines in the field of vision)
  • Trouble adjusting to low light conditions
  • Distorted vision
  • Eye pain
  • Eye strain
  • Full or partial blindness
  • Muted colors
  • Eye color changes

If you have taken Elmiron and have maculopathy or other serious eye damage it is important to seek legal counsel.
