I was diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration and took Elmiron. Could there be a connection?
Yes. It is not unusual for the toxic maculopathy seen in long-term Elmiron patients to be mistaken for other known retinal conditions, such as age-related macular degeneration. One reason for this is that warnings - regarding the potential toxicity - were not added to the labels until June 2020.
I started having vision problems after taking Elmiron. How would we know if my eye issue is related to Elmiron?
The best and fastest way to accurately answer that question is to give us a call or complete the quick online form for further evaluation.
You will need to have an eye examination and diagnosis as part of the evaluation. Be sure to let your doctor know about your Elmiron usage - dosage, duration, time frame, and any vision-related changes you have experienced.
What are the most common symptoms?
The most common symptoms include eye pain, blurred vision, and problems adapting to low-light environments.
Elmiron-related vision problems are progressive. The most serious eye damage caused by Elmiron is vision loss or blindness.
What is my claim worth?
Final compensation will depend on several factors, including actual damages, the number of claimants, and other factors. The case is still in the early stages. However, there is a clear connection between Elmiron and eye damage.
How long do these lawsuits take to complete or settle?
