NY Elmiron Lawyers
The manufacturers of Elmiron —the only drug currently approved by the FDA to treat interstitial cystitis (IC)— are being litigated against, accused of being responsible for causing unexpected vision loss. Janssen Pharmaceuticals, the company behind the interstitial cystitis drug Elmiron, is now facing accusations of distributing a dangerous bladder medication because reports involving varying degrees of retinal damage have become more frequent.
If you or someone you know has been taking Elmiron and have fallen ill, or are experiencing unexpected vision loss, you may be eligible for compensation for any pain and suffering that is directly caused by this drug.

Symptoms of Elmiron Vision Loss
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms after using Elmiron for an extended period of time, you may be eligible for compensation:
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty reading or seeing distant objects
- Difficulty seeing close objects
- Dim vision or lack of light sensitivity
- Metamorphopsia: a defect that results in linear objects appearing rounded or curved
- Spotty vision loss in the center of one’s field of vision
- Difficulty adjusting to low light levels
- Abnormal blood vessels around the macula
- Hyperpigmentation (dark spots) around or on the retina
- Vitelliform deposits, which look like yellowish lesions beneath the macula
How Elmiron Causes Macular Degeneration
Elmiron has been linked to several cases of vision loss, including a condition called pigmentary maculopathy. Also called macular degeneration, pigmentary maculopathy occurs when deposits of drusen, a toxin, build up in eye tissue. These deposits can lead to varying degrees of macular degeneration, from loss of visual clarity to total blindness.
