Elmiron® Class Action Lawsuits
Elmiron®, was first discovered to be toxic when a preliminary report published in 2018 by Emory Eye Center suggested a link between patients taking the medication and those developing pigmentary maculopathy, a loss of color pigmentation and sight. This prompted another in-depth study released in 2019 by expert ophthalmologists in Northern California, which found that one-fourth of the Elmiron® users in the study had suffered maculopathy due to their chronic exposure to PPS. This study highlighted the negative effects of Elmiron® on retinal tissue.
Studies are still ongoing to determine the full extent of damages and injuries that can be caused by exposure to PPS, but the following types of eye damage may be linked with using Elmiron®:
- Macular degeneration
- Pigmentary maculopathy
- Pattern dystrophy
- Vision loss
If you or a loved one has suffered eye damage such as after taking Elmiron®, our experienced attorneys can help you get the justice you deserve.
