Elmiron Vision Loss & Damage

Some patients taking Elmiron long term are being diagnosed with conditions and injuries such as drug induced toxicity or maculopathy, macular degeneration, drug induced atrophy, pentosan associated maculopathy, and retinal pigmentary epithelium. Unfortunately, the drug Elmiron is causing up to a quarter of long-term users to develop toxicity in the retina and cause the aforementioned vision loss issues.

Elmiron and Maculopathy

Maculopathy is a condition affecting the center part of the retina called the macula. Macular degeneration, also known as age-related macular degeneration is a medical condition which can result in blurry vision or no vision in the center of the visual field. It does not usually result in complete blindness but rather severely deteriorated vision.

Other forms of maculopathy include cellophane maculopathy, known as macular pucker. This form of visual distortion causes a fine glistening membrane to form over the macula which can obscure vision.


Elmiron Pigmentary Maculopathy

The type of maculopathy linked to Elmiron is called pigmentary maculopathy. This type of maculopathy is apparently unique and can be traced to Elmiron use. If caught during early stages, the damage may stop after taking medication. Long term users with pigmentary maculopathy can result in permanent vision loss. Studies show that further deterioration may continue after ceasing to use Elmiron if the toxicity levels in the eye are high enough.

The United States Food and Drug Administration has not updated the label for Elmiron to warn consumers about the increased risk of pigmentary maculopathy. In Canada however, drug labels were changed in 2019 to include the warning.
