Eye Diagram of Macula

Maculopathy (Macular Damage) from Interstitial Cystitis Medication

A type of vision injury called maculopathy (macular damage) has been recently reported to be associated with the long term use of the oral medication Elmiron (pentosan polysulfate sodium) for the medical condition: interstitial cystitis. The maculopathy associated with Elmiron presents with what appears to be unique pigment changes in the macula (central part of the retina) found during eye examinations by your vision specialist. Patients suffering from this form of maculopathy may report such serious vision problems as blurry vision while reading, difficulty adapting to the dark and distorted vision.

If you or a loved one have developed a pigmented maculopathy after the long term use of Elmiron for interstitial cystitis, you may be entitled to compensation.  Please contact experienced attorney/physician Lawrence Paikoff, MD, JD, by email with our form or call (530) 297-1144 for a free consultation.
