What kind of eye damage can Elmiron cause?

Home » FAQs » What kind of eye damage can Elmiron cause?

Elmiron is a widely-prescribed drug used to treat interstitial cystitis (IC), a painful bladder condition. Patients are usually prescribed Elmiron indefinitely, as it’s a treatment, not a cure, for IC. However, long-term Elmiron use has been linked to the following types of eye damage:

  • Blurred vision
  • Degenerative maculopathy
  • Halo vision
  • Macular retinopathy
  • Macular/pattern dystrophy
  • Maculopathy
  • Metamorphopsia
  • Pigmentary maculopathy
  • Reduced night vision
  • Retinal pigment epithelium atrophy
  • Retinopathy
  • Scotoma
  • Unilateral or bilateral blindness
  • Vision impairment
  • Vision loss

If you’ve suffered any of the above vision symptoms while taking Elmiron for IC, you could be eligible to join an Elmiron lawsuit and receive financial compensation.
